    Looking for a plain-jane stamped fender style bridge that stays intonated and doesn't have crap parts that rattle loose. Any suggestions.

    I just installed a Gotoh 201 on my Jazz bass that I'm very happy with... about $25 clams.

    So is Fender's aftermarket stuff what you would find on their MIA lines, as opposed to the MIM or Squire?

    The Gotoh 201 is a great low mass replacement bridge.

    I am moving this to our Setup forum, which is where we discuss modifications, hardware, repairs, etc.

    Well, i think its a little different from both. Ive seen a Fender aftermarket bridge and it appeared to be slightly different/better than stock MIM bridges. The MIA fenders have string through body bridges, and the aftermarket bridges arent. They are decent bridges though.
