    I went with a Compton and it was the finishing touch. Worth the upgrade

    I've been thrilled with both Compton and Tru-Arc bridges, bought a half dozen total

    It looks so slick, it’s what I like about it!
    I’ve never even seen these, but I don’t want to add too much extra brightness with the aluminium is what would put me off.

    An aluminum Compton will be just as bright.
    I stay away from most aluminum bridges for that very reason.

    She's an absolute beast! You're going to love her. Seems to really like 6L6's over EL84s. Fyi - I've taken mine out to stores and put her through clean jazz amps through a Cusack Screamer and been blown away. Would love to know what amps you find best with yours.

    Thought about a Compton for mine ... but I have the stock bridge. And it is set up great. It never really goes out of tune at all. It's a rock machine !

    Congratulations on your gorgeous guitar!!! Enjoy -- for MANY years.....!

    My first sighting (in person) of a Jet Firebird ii the mid-ish 1950's is what got me hooked on Gretsch guitars in the first place. I still am hooked.......

    Bridge? Personally I've had excellent experiences with TruArcs, especially the Serpentune models.

    Terribly! I have a one year old daughter who has serious FOMO issues, so she wakes up every hour so I will say that I sometimes go and have a sneak look at the Jet just after I’ve got her back to sleep.

    I’m going to be trying out a few new ones soon, however it’s sounding good through my vox ac15 head with a 1x12 cab with celestion cream back, but might be looking at Fender soon...
