Yeah maybe theres a reason they changed the bridge. Leo kinda knew what he was doing.
how 'bout you ?
EAD string-through and GBE top-loader or GTFO.
Or was it the other way around...
I'd be interested.
I don't know if I'd be in the market. I'm pretty full up on guitars right now. Though somehow I still want more. But that's a different post.
I love my top loaders.
I'd consider just having the big E and the A string through. The tonic difference is minor, at least the manner in which I play, and the bonus is, the binding of wire that holds the ball end on, isn't in your way, messing with intonation and scratching up your fingers. I find this binding comes right up to and nearly falls over the break point - IMO you don't want that.
Although with 9s and especially 8s the top load plain strings can slip around when bent strenuously - something for players of skinny strings to remember.
I don't think you need a drill press. A nail punch well aimed at 6 spots, and a small hand powered crank drill or small electric hand held driver is fine.
this one I just built is a toploader.
I personally wouldn't, but to each their own...
I think they would sell them. Although the top-loading is not as popular as the string through, there are enough people out there who like top loading and Fender makes plenty of 3-hole-bridged guitars.
I think the point is some people believe a big difference comes from the strings going thru the body or not
To people who want them to not, but still crave Fender brand 3 saddle goodness... this idea is for them
My own irrational prejudice is for strings to go thru the body, so not for me
