Vintage Gretsch Floating Sound Unit Tuning Fork Bridge, which came off of my own personal 1964 Gretsch Viking, which was also utilized on the White Falcon.  It is my understanding that these were only used on these two guitars (The Viking was considered the sunburst &  "less flamboyant" White Falcon).  Gold plating still looks good.  

This is a Gretsch Floating Sound Unit, also known as the "FSU" or "Tuning Fork", because this bridge is also a tuning fork... tuned to 440Hz! Loved by Chet Atkins, designed by Jimmie Webster. This bridge would float after the space control bridge and would act as the actual bridge resonator of sorts. Gretsch was always tinkering & forward thinking, these were considered very hi-tech at the time.

Structurally sound with no issues. Most players players back then removed these,  so they are extraordinarily tough to find. Extremely rare! Perfect piece to make your prized Gretsch guitar 100% original.
