I've put Comptons on 3 Gretsches, replacing 2 tune-o-matics and 1 space control bridge. I much prefer the Compton, and bar bridges in general. One reason is that their smoothness precludes any protruding annoying edges or screws from digging into your hands, such as the OP mentioned.
I also had a Compton (on my Silver Falcon). I have one on my Tennessee Rose now, and am planning on adding one to my Fortus White Falcon, which I just recently purchased. Love them!Has anyone replaced the syncro-sonic bridge on the 55 Falcon to another type of bridge? The adjustment screws sit to high and dig into my hand when playing. All suggestions appreciated! Thanks
