    One thing about the thick metal bridge damping factor the tests may not show is the movement of the entire bridge
    Agree that the transient movement of the bridge during attack wouldn't show in these decay time measurements.

    As the bridge always returns to its original position, it can be assumed that the bridge movement is resonant as well but presumably at a frequency below the lowest string fundamental. This kind of bridge resonance would show as a frequency modulation (vibrato) of the guitar signal for a fraction of a second. It would steal some of the attack energy.
