[DISCUSSION] Just bought an Epiphone Casino. Looking for a bridge to replace the Locktone Tune-O-Matic

The Casino feels lovely to play and sounds great when plugged in. The only thing is that the B string rattles quite a bit. It doesn’t rattle through the amp when I play plugged in, but it rattles quite a bit when I play unplugged.

Ive heard that the best thing to do is to just replace the bridge altogether, so I’m looking for a trusty replacement that’d fit my Casino. I’ve seen the Gotoh Tune-O-Matic recommended elsewhere.

I’ve never had to replace a bridge before, so I’m wondering if it’ll be as straightforward as just swapping out the old bridge for a new one. Or would I likely have to set the guitar up afterwards? Thought I’d ask seeing as the Casino has a Trapeze tailpiece. If the guitar would likely need set up again, which tools should I have at the ready?
