    Need to know the best bridge and tailpiece to buy for es 335. Do not want to use any tremolo, just regular bridge.

    "best" is a very loose term. You could go Faber, Creamtone, etc. Or PLT will get you just about anything you want for much cheaper, if that's the route you want to go.

    we need more info, nashville, abr, nickel, aged, etc?...

    The best one will be whatever gives you the look and tone you want.

    As you have not bothered to tell us the look you want, nor any existing hole sizes, and (until you've swapped in/out every type to make a direct comparison) nobody will know the best tonally for the specific guitar you have, its pointless making any broad conjectural statements.

    I just mainly wanted to know the best brand names for the ones like they use on the les pauls. I know there is one type of bridge for LP that sets flat on the top and shimmed up to the proper height, but I don't remember what the name of it was.
