Hey Everyone,

I have a 1972 4001 that I am trying to restore back to originality as much as I can.. (afford) Currently it has a Badass II Bridge. ( I didn't install this) although the bridge does work well I really want a Ric bridge. Does anyone know if I can use any Ric 4001/4003 Bridge until I find a vintage one?

You can use a 4001C64 tailpiece/bridge assembly without drilling any extra holes. A correct cast aluminum assembly for your bass will be big money, so I'd stick with the C64 parts.

Thank you so much for the reply... I was actually going to fit a bridge assembly from 1975... So I will check out the C64. Thanks again and keep rockin!
