I have noticed that a lot of high end basses, American Fender, Music Man, Warwick use these cheap looking stamped steel bridges and a lot of basses that get "ragged on" (Ibanez, Yamaha, etc.) use a bridge that looks like some thought was actually put into the manufacture. The only high end bass that uses what looks like a trick engineered bridge is the G&L. There are probably others but this one seems really popular with experienced bass players. Is the plain stamped steel better? Is the heavey looking two piece cast things that come on say an Ibanez SRX500 just a marketing gimmick? I am told they provide better sustain and provide superior intonation. Is that true? I am ready to step up to a higher end bass from my SRX300 and I really like the Stingray but the cheap loooking bridge just bugs me.
