    Hello, i am building my first tele and i am nearly at the end of the road, i have to just choose the bridge, mount it, solder electronics and it will be ready to play.

    And here comes the question: i have 2 bridges to choose from: a top loader bridge with six saddles, (short one, without place for the pickup because i am using H-H setting anyway) mounted on 3 screws or a string through TOM bridge (like many ESP and LTD guitars have). I have to choose one from them but i don't know how the top loader (which is way easier to install) behaves when it is drop tuned with heavy gauge strings (I'm talking about standard B and drop A tuning). Anyone have any experience with tuning top loader to such a low tunings? I know it will feel a little more slinkier than a string through but i like this.

    Thanks in advance
