I installed a Metric ABR-1 bridge with wire from Philadelphia Luthier on my Casino, very good quality . Posts are 4mm diameter.

I bet the GOTOH bridge will be just fine....I've lookd at 'SADDLES' to replace the ones I have on a 2017 Les Paul Standard..TITANIUM Saddles were/are fairly expensive for what thy actually are.....I wanted to put the same titanium saddles that I got STOCK on an ES-335 from late 2017 (a 2018 Model ES-335 TRADITIONAL 'BIG BLOCK')...the titanium SADDLES I mention were part of a 2018 (?) ABR-1 Wireless Bridge...IDK if its the entire guitar that produces the clearest tones I have ever heard on a GIBSON Electric.....but the two guitars that I have with Titanium saddles, especilly the ES-335 'BIG BLOCK', are clearest sounding electric Guitars I've ever heard/owned/played, Without -A- Doubt !

I think they were/are $12/Per Saddle, a set of 6 around $70 + T-A-XXX ! & maybe shipping too ! NOT CHEAP, FOR SURE and IDK If its what makes the difference on the particular guitars I mentioned above !!!

PS in the end I bought a Guyker bridge piece with roller saddles, simply because it came with chrome inserts / bushings that were the correct (larger than Gibson) diameter to replace the "gold" ones the V came with. I just don't like cheap looking fake gold finishes. Sorry.

Now the only "gold" parts left on the V are the little ferrules or inserts that are the string anchors, recessed well into the back of the body.

So I wonder why people are bringing it up in a discussion about new Epiphones and modern replacement bridges?
:rofl:Simply because that is what's supposed to be done on 'lectric guitar forums. Find solutions to imaginary problems that don't exist in the real world. I guess this comes from people who use to have imaginary friends as a child ...

Roller Bridge is a good option.
