    I just purchased and Epiphone Thunderbird Classic IV Pro. Is the Hipshot Supertone bridge a "must have" upgrade?

    I see a lot of people use them on these T-birds. Are there tangible benefits to upgrading? Will the stock bridge do the trick? Any input would be appreciated!

    Stock works fine. Supertone works better. Much easier to adjust and it doesn't fall apart if you change strings. Individual string height adjustment. Not so fiddly to set intonation. Looks very cool.
