Iíve been searching for the post / thread that had a link to Frets.com, with an article about adjustments that could be made on archtops. I read the article and tried the adjustment on the bridge of my Gretsch, and it totally changed the tonality and playability of that guitar. Instead of the edgy bark, it now has a much fuller rounder tone. What appears to be a loss in volume I am convinced is the loss of the edgy bark, giving way to richer tone. This took only a matter of minutes.

So, whoever posted that link, I salute you!

Sorry, Jazzy, that wasn't the link I followed. It was this one:
