When using a Strat style hardtail bridge,is the string tension and tone different (better,worse or indifferent) when stringing through the box to the bottom of the box or stringing straight to the bridge backplate? I know there's more work involved in running the strings down through the box....
I like that neck joint a lot Taff.
Thanks,Taff....Good detailed pics always helps.
Altering the stringing method can't change the tension in the string. It may change the pressure on the bridge saddles, but the tension in the string will remain the same. String tension for a given scale length and string gauge can't change unless you alter the tuning, it's just a law a physics! Here's my take on through stringing a hardtail bridge.
