Still a good functional bridge. The castings are getting kind of sloppy, and the plating is not up to par. It is still a great retrofit for any bass using a bent steel plate vintage Fender style bridge. However, some Kramer and other basses require a shim plate to raise the bridge so the saddle keys will still engage the slots. If you do not mind drilling more holes in your bass I would recommend Schaller, ABM, Kahler, or Gotoh bridges. If you have a rare colored Kramer or other vintage bass and do not want to drill more holes the Gotoh will work if the standard string spacing is used, but for short/mid scale basses with narrower string spacing the Badass is the best option. Use a .100-.125" thick aluminum plate to shim the bridge. The connectivity is still there, and sustain loss is minimal if you do it right. For the money these are still a 5 star item. (for now) The availability of Badass and limited sales exclusive to large mass production shops like Fender should knock off a star.
