I guess it's not the stock bridge? How does it sound compared to metal bar bridges?
If I could only have two, it'd be these two.
A slightly modified 6121-FTW
And my most beloved PRS DGT
Then I'd find what was limiting me to two guitars and kill it with fire - or, if the opportunity presented itself, nuke it from orbit.
No, the stock bridge is the rattle-o-matic in gold. There was a Bigsby in gold, with gold knobs too.
As expected the ebony bridge is more mellow and jazzy, although not a lot.
And it doesn't rattle Which brand is that?
My keepers are the Gretsch White Falcon 7593 and my Taylor 816CE.
40 years of trial and error and I'm down to the 6120EC and 6120SSL.

Oh god no,not an original 54 ,just a 60th Anniversary 54 reissue,it's a lovely guitar though.
no way. It must be 3. my 6120, AVRI52 and my 480 Rickenbacker (1975, my first guitar)
1959 Martin 000-18
These would pretty much cover my bases, but I'd hope they'd breed and make more....
A Marty Gibbs. The lost brother.
I'm a proponent of that approach.
That said, I usually have two guitars (and would right now as well had a custom builder not disappeared with a substantial chunk of cash and expensive parts).
My usual M.O. is to have one top-tier vintage Gretsch (usually a Country Gentleman, Jet or 6120) and one other less expensive #2, partly for diversity, and partly for taking to particularly rowdy gigs. In recent years my #2s have been a '62 Tennessean, '61 6113, a '64 Rickenbacker 1998, a '61 Guild T-100DP, a homebrew '62 Strat clone. My intended custom build was to be a '59 Rickenbacker 365 clone, but since that's not happening, I'll pick something else as my hypothetical #2. Since #1 is a '59 Gent with FilterTrons, it'd have to be something with single coils. A new Guild X-175 is a real possibility, but I think what I'll more likely end up doing is looking for a bargain on '50s Streamliner, preferably with an added bridge pickup so I don't have to be the one to add it.
Pretty much says it all for my two
