Yeah, I actually like Fender's current bridge on their MIA models over the bridge on the ASAT - the ASAT's bridge is solid enough, but it pushes the strings over to one side rather than keep them centered, when locked down... Also, the saddle height screws don't hold adjustment as well as the Fender bridge, although that's easily remedied with a spot of blue locktite on each screw...I thought the G&L Jazz bass would be a lot better than the Fender Jazz I traded for it, it is better, but it's not night and day. I do like the bridge a lot better, and that was the impetus. I also ended up with a case and some other better things.
Still a big fan of the G&L lineup. I have the two G&Ls above, and have a Stingray, and that will be my modest collection for the rest of my life. I'd like to add a Fender Precision to it all and at that point I can't think of anything else I'd ever need (maybe a cheap fretless).
Again, to each their own...
