The M2 is equipped with Marcus Standard Bass Bridge. Just by looking at it, the bridge may look like a low-cost bridge made with Zinc plate or Zinc saddle. However, the bridge is made with a Steel saddle and Steel plate. Normally, introductory basses use a type of alloy called Zinc. Bass bridges made with Zinc is very easy to manufacture and inexpensive. However, these Zinc bridges may look good on the outside, but it is difficult to create a good bass sound.
