Fitting the Jag’s High Mass bridge

The new bridge arrived late last week, then I had to wait to pick it up from the local Post Office as there was a customs charge on it #not happy.

The bridge is a nice piece of work, definitely chunkier than the standard fit bit of bent metal:

It was simple to fit – take the strings off, unscrew the old bridge, (give the bass a dust), fit the new bridge, making sure that the ground wire was in contact, then put the strings back on again.

The bass looks better with the new bridge – I just have to go through the motions of setting the action and intonation now and see what difference it has made. Hopefully the sustain will have improved in the same way as it did when I added the Babicz to the P Bass.
