    I've had one on my 74 P four nine years, but the only reason it's there is the old bridge was falling apart; the sound did change but not substantially to make the bass sound different. The only thing it really improved was the balance by making the body heavier.
     
  4. For me, it seemed to offer more sustain and it also definitely improves the feel of the plucked string. I'd describe it as a slightly buttery feel, more bouncy and easier on the fingers.

    fenderbluesdude,

    It doesn't matter at all for blues which bridge you use.
