The BASS II is a precision, harmonically-tunable direct replacement bridge designed to enhance Fender Jazz and Precision Basses. The special music metal material was engineered to provide synergistic resonance mass and the most efficient sound transfer for tremendous increase in attack, sustain and clarity of notes, without changing the tone of the wood. The BASS II replaces the original bridge, and eliminates the inaccurate harmonic tuning caused by "round" shaped, and "roller" saddles of other bridges, interference of string ends contacting the bridge saddles, and unwanted side movement of strings and bridge saddles for the purest tone/sound transfer possible.*Note: It is advised that the unslotted version be slotted by a tech to achieve the proper string break-angle. In some cases, the best string-to-pole piece alignment can be achieved with the unslotted version, as it is custom slotted by your tech.
Very well built, and a joy to install.

The benefits of having a bridge this solid far outweigh the cost.
An easy upgrade to any bass with the common Fender style 5 hole bridge. I have 2 of these installed now; one on my Fender Jaguar bass, and one on my Squier Jaguar bass. I don't know that my ears can discern a difference in sound, but the bridge is much more solid, thick, and easy to adjust. The tracks that each saddle sits in keeps the alignment of the strings steady, something that can shift around with the standard bridge.
