Having forayed into the gypsy jazz style from playing other jazz styles about a year ago, I purchased my first gypsy jazz guitar---a Gitane DG-255. I've been very satisfied with the tone and I've decided to "upgrade" the tuners and tailpiece.
My question is: How many of you think it is necessary to change the stock bridge on the Gitane? I've been reading on the forums that a new bridge will help the tone open up much more and will eliminate the horrid bass thumping from the stock Saga bridge. If I do change the bridge, is there a way to get one slotted, or pre-made, as I am not very good with tools and I don't trust myself working on a 60 dollar dupont bridge.
Thanks in advance
