I'm assuming you mean a 325C58. The answer depends upon what you're looking for in sound and function.

There's the Bigsby bowtie bridge or Rickenbacker's 6 saddle. There isn't much adjustment available with the Bowtie. If you imitating Lennon and that's what you want. Than go the Bowtie Bridge. Otherwise the 6 saddle is easier to work with

I like the bowtie bridge better it gives it a more unique sound.The stock bridge dident impress me so I sold that bridge and bought the bowtie for mine.

i have a Bigsby B5 fitted to my 325 and ive used both the bowtie and the rollerbridge and i prefer the stock rollerbridge. i found the bowtie moved and put the guitar out of tune if you use the vibrato.

if i fitted a bowtie again to my 325 i would certainly flatten the bottom of the bowtie as they are meant for archtop guitars. also you have to compromise intonation wise.

my opinion - go the rollerbridge
