    Long shot, but I've picked up a few new Gretsches recently and thought I'd check to see if anything's available used, just in case. I'd like to find an old style brass for my 6121-55 as it's not pinned and it'll save money! I also picked up a 6120-55 and a 6129-68 recently. Along with new bridges for those, apparently I'll need new bases as well, as Tim said spacing is different on the guitars with stock compensated Gretsch bridges and bases. I'd love to find some Serpentunes for those, but let me know what you have! The 6120-55 is pinned so that might need to be a Serpentune. Thanks very much!

    I wouldn't be in a rush to swap over those compensated rocking bridges. They are a secret weapon in getting twang, once you stop them from falling over by filing off the knife edge underneath.
