    What bridge string spacing do I need to order for a 4-string Precision bass (Warmoth) with a Jazz neck (Warmoth too)?

    Looking at these as I don't like how the Hipshot A Fender replacement style only uses 3 of the Fender holes.

    Thanks!

    Usually 19 mm. Personal taste can have it wider or narrower.

    Yup, but 19mm is the standard for Fender bridges whether it's a Precision, or a Jazz.

    I just replaced a Badass II bridge in a very bright P bass with one of these:

    It tamed some of the highs and the spacing is adjustable.

    Works great!
