    It's true the increased height had me scratching my head a little, because it would seem counterproductive, but with the typical gauges of electrics it's probably irrelevant and may even aid bending by exaggerating the pitch shift so one doesn't actually have to bend "so far"? (across a fret once fretted, as opposed to action height at that fret)

    For a brief time I had my Nightbird set up with the strings wrapping over the stoptail. I thought it made the strings feel too springy so I switched back to "normal" soon after. I like a springy feel with most Fender(-style) guitars but not so much otherwise.

    Now you need to go back to Airplane's Build-a-Thunderbird thread and tell him what the "Matrix" connection is.
    I left 100 bonus points hangin' out there for you.

    Thanks for giving me chance to gain 100 points . . . can we use those for something . . . ? on this forum . . .?
    I sent him a proposition - it has to do with where he is going to. Other than that I can not come up with anything. My imagination is very limited. And Finnish is so different from English and German. Those two are almost clones of each other from Finnish point of view. . .

    So go ahead and start planning how to use them bonus points .

    My PRS Hollowbody has the strings wrapped over the stoptail. I had never tried that before but I love it on this guitar.
