Greetings, all. Just got a brand-spanking-new G5627t p90 when GC gave me a trade-in deal I couldn't refuse. Not only my first Gretsch, but it's the first time I've ever bought a new guitar; it's also my first Bigsby and my first time with two P90s. So, it scratches alot of itches. I'll post pics when I get around to taking them, but for now, can anyone tell me if DBridges is still in business?

Welcome. P90’s love um’. Sadly I’m P90 less currently….😞

DBridges, I suspect someone will chime in on the subject.

Looking forward to your photos

Hi. How's it goin'?
I like P-90s. If there was only one pickup ever built, it'd have to be a P-90.
Dbridges may be on a hiatus. He's got a lot of irons in the fire and bridges are a sideline.
Look at Compton or Tru-Arc. They're both still active.

Hello @cat3, welcome to G-T. It's good to have you join the gang here.
Congrats on your first Gretsch, probably just a start for your collection.
Enjoy your G5627T P90. I've got Compton bridges on a couple of mine and they work great, no experience with Tru-Arc or Dbridge.

Congrats on the new Gretsch and welcome to the forum.

Sorry, no idea on DBridges, but there's several old threads on here about and/or by him. He used to be a fairly active member, less so recently.

Welcome! I personally like ABR-1 style bridges or melitas, but I have had some Tru-arc stuff and it’s the highest quality. A lot of people talk about perfect intonation, and I like to have the adjustability hence my bridge preferences, but even a regular Tru-arc will get you close enough for rock and roll if that’s your thing. I had them on a couple Duo Jets and they were fine.
