    Has anyone ran the low E, A, and D strings top loader and the G, B, and high E string through?

    Thoughts, observations, comments?

    Thats an idea! I think I may try that one day, I have a Wilkinson which allows for that. Need more Campilongo research before I commit~

    I have a GFS bridge that allows it also. Next string change, I'm gonna give it a go.

    ...maybe some day I'll run two low E's, two g's and two high E's, one of each top loader and the other string through, so that I can hear if there really is a difference.

    Bouncy bottom, twangy top. Could give you a unique sound~

    Interesting idea: I'd want to try the opposite however, string through bottom strings and top load the high E, B and maybe G. Tighter bottom and looser top?

    Guess I could try this on my Baja...hmmm. Honestly, toploading seems to make a bigger difference in feel than tone (to me, at least), and that's a smaller difference than I expected, too, though I do like it...

    Because they can! :)

    Hopefully, I'll finish the Tele I'm working on this weekend. I have a Wilkinson dual load bridge and am eager to try it out.
