1) point of comparison 2) physics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penetration_depth
I am impressed and appreciate the testing and data demonstrating the physics of what influence materials have on the sound of a guitar~good stuff.
I think there are so many factors that influence the sound of a guitar. For me
I tend to make adjustments till I get what I want The more info available
the easier it is to get good results.
I just checked my MIM Nashville Tele bridge, approx 2.5 mm thick and looking just like the one on the far right in your pic of the four you tested. It is magnetic... grabs my magnet anywhere I touch it. It is on the guitar, and I assume it is not magnetic due to the Fralin SP42 pickup installed. So I have to think it is steel.
If a magnet sticks to it, it's definitely steel, because brass or aluminium are the only other two materials I know of to be often used, and they're not magnetic.
