No, that won't work.

You need a Tune-O-Matic bridge.

I'll find one at a decent price, hold on..

EDIT: GuitarFetish sells cheap (but from what I hear, reliable) hardware.

You'll need a bridge.

(I'm fairly certain you need the second one if it's an Epiphone)

And then, you'll need a stopbar tailpiece.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain-top
Basswood Telecaster, 2 single-sized HB's, both split.

Oh, and I have a Squier VM Jazz Bass too.

Yes, he can use it. But you would have two extra posts/holes from where the tailpiece sits normally. You can just take them out and fill in the holes.

But wouldn't he have to have the bridge sitting outrageously high to compensate for the angle at which the neck is glued in?

No, because he'll have to take out the original studs and put in the new ones that come with the bridge. The hight should be the same as the saddles on the original.

Oh.

Well, either bridge will work I suppose.

It's your choice threadstarter.

Threadstarter. Ha, what a cool sounding name. Like Highlander... *cough* *ahem* Well, it would be cheaper, I think, to just buy the pieces separately.
