this is a question ive thought about for awhile and cant come up with a definite answer so help me out. obviously, being able to set the intonation is important so this would be bad bridge right?:

also, what makes a quality bridge? what metals are better then other ones?

The harder the metal, the better the bridge. Or so I read.

So, Brass bridges are soft and weak. Steel bridges are better.
Always tin your strings.

Well those are more a question of what you want to do with it. Best sustain = wrap around. Most use = OFR (I think, not exactly my kinda thing). But generally the factors you look at are, tuning stablility and sustain.

i wouldn't really say their is a list of what makes a bridge good or bad more so just the general construction and materials used sure the lack of adjustable intonation may not be the best thing in the world but with proper placement of bridge and good tuning skills i wouldn't see how it could affect you much unless you like to change tunings alot.

but how can you tell which bridge has more? better metal? more mass?
