Replacement Bridge for thunderbird

I'm looking for a replacement bridge for my epiphone gothic thunderbird. I'm looking for something black that will keep the full warm bassy tone (wont add treble or that much punch to it).
here are a few that I was looking into:
http://www.warmoth.com/hardware/brid...dges_gotoh_206

any ideas, cause unfortunately this isn't something I can try before buying?

Got one on my Washburn, it's pretty good. Also the option of String thru and stop tail is useful.

Got one of which. The string through option doesn't apply, because the thunderbird is a top mount and I dont want to start routing holes through the body.

The Gotoh bridge is terrible. What kind of bridge does your Thunderbird have?

It has the stock epiphone bridge. It just doesn't look like it will hold up for a long period of time, it feels really flimsy, especially when restringing.

It sure is!

I kinda got used to it; I replaced it with another three point bridge with a mod bar behind it to increase the string length.

I never wanted another bridge btw; OK, it is flimpsy but I personally think it adds some character to the bass!

Man these spammers get my hopes up cause I think that people are actually replying to my posts with helpful suggestions (or at least humor or something)
