I tried to find it on here, as know it's been discussed but, I find the bridge on my Setzer Phoenix (It's stock) is "helping" me break more strings than normal. What should I do/replace it with? Rocker bridge...roller?

Tru-Arc bridge all the way.
Contact Gretschpages.com Member "Proteus" through his account over there, he'll tell you everything you need to know!
I have an aluminium T-A on my SSLVO and the guitar is twangy as hell but never harsh.

B.. your Phoenix is a higher tension scale 25.5 and more prone to breakage
unless your bridge slots are carefully manicured between string changes
and proper lubed.

having said that... Chris is right, and aluminum tru-arc bridge is pretty dang
cool and you just arent gonna break strings, plus you will gain twang, sustain
and no binding with the bigsby.. I have one on my SSU and love it although
I still have my hand massaged ABR-1 sitting on the SSLVO (although I did
order a copper tru-arc for that)
