Also, the Nashville bridge that Gibson uses now is a Chinese-made PingWorks Nashville, which seems to not be up to the quality of the original Nashville bridge that Gibson used to use, which is made by Schaller. The Schaller Nashville is made in Germany and by most accounts is a better bridge than the Ping one. Having said that, I prefer the ABR-style bridge, despite what some think are its drawbacks (the wire, less range of adjustment).
Ok, gotcha..thanks guys. I put an aluminum wrap around tail on for the same reason. Maybe now I should look into what I can do in the bridge dept. I have to say that I wouldn't mind trying an ABR with the high 3 saddles as nylon like Joe Bonamassa did on one of his Pauls. Just to see what it would do, ya know, something new and different to have to adapt to.
