    Has anyone taken a chance on one of these in either gold or chrome? If so, what did you think? I like the idea, but don't want to spend the bucks on one if they're not any good.

    I put a Wilkerson on mine. $30.00. Chrome or gold. Works great for me.

    It is not clear who makes it. There is high variability among these bridges (very "dynamic" product) so I would buy one from a brand/manufacturer you trust and learn about. Gretsch does not make bridges, AFAIK, and the bridges that do come on Gretsch are not considered very good.

    Brandless for 50 whopping bucks is not the way you want to go with something tone critical as a bridge.

    Stick to Schaller, Gotoh or ABM if you want rollers.

    Ricochet is right on. If you want rollers.

    The ones on Ebay are most likely cheap Asian production.

    I just ordered a set for my Epi Les Paul on Stew-Mac. Not sure if they were a name brand or not so I guess I'll find out when they get here? If they're not what I want I won't have any problem sending them back for a set of Schaller or another name brand. I'm with Ricochet on this one.

    The Schaller roller bridge is extremely well made and sells for under $60 USD on eBay.
    I'm waiting on an ABM now. Bought one for my 12-string and it too was really high quality.
    Can't speak to Gotoh.
    Great advice from Ricochet.
