So it’s time to change strings on one of my teles. This tele… As the title and the poll indicates, this bridge plate can be strung either way, so I’m asking for input from all y’all as to how to string it up this time. I know, it’s my guitar, my choice, there’s no wrong answer, yada yada…But hey, we’re here for “discussion,” right? So I just thought I’d throw this question out there. I have strung this guitar as a top-loader before, but it’s been a few years. BTW, the first pic was from when the guitar was new, in 2009. The red backdrop plus the lighting at night gives the guitar a more butterscotch blonde look. The second pic is more recent, taken in daylight and is a more accurate representation of its finish color, which is Honey Blonde. But I chose those two pics because they are the closest I have to showing the dual stringing capability of that bridge plate. So, what do you suggest? What gets your vote? Traditional string-though, top-loaded or half and half? And if the latter, bass strung through and trebles top-loaded? Or vice versa? Reasons?
