Should I replace the adjustable bridge on my 1966 Gibson J-50?

Hi everybody,
I'm not a luthier but I've got a question for the people that have the answers (that would be y'all-yes I'm from Savannah, Georgia).
I just got a 1966 Gibson J-50 with the "famous" adjustable bridge.
It sounds good now but I've got a gut feeling that a standard rosewood bridge with a bone saddle would really bring it to life.
Does anybody have any direct experience to compare the before and after sound in this kind of guitar?
Also, who is really good at this kind of work?
Thanks so much for your time and expert opinions.
Chuck
