Bridge Alternatives to gibraltar plus/RGA

So I'm looking for an RGA121, however, I don't think I'll be able to get real comfortable with the bridge on it. I'm too used to TOM style bridges and such, and believe it or not, I find the sharp pokey saddles a little bit more comfortable for me. Would some sort of wraparound bridge work on the RGA? I'm interested in the:

Schaller Bridge/Tailpiece
( http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Bridges,...Tailpiece.html )

Schaller 455

or Gotoh 510.

Also, what other hardtail 25.5" Prestige guitars does Ibanez make? So far the RGA is all I can find.

Thanks guys

Have you tried the RGA? I found the bridge to be very comfortable.

I say spend a little time with one, and you not have to change out the bridge.

Oh of course I'm going to give it a try, but typically speaking, I really prefer the feel of TOM and wraparound bridges. Do you happen to know the specs on the Gibraltar bridge? Or any other kickass hardtail guitars?
