Now I have finally got the funds for ordering a strat clone from USACG.
I'm still in doubt about a few things and wanted to receive input from you guys about the bridge issue.
I'm still torn between a tremolo bridge and a hardtail. I was totally set on a hardtail but then heard that a lot of people like anchor the bridge flush to the body and even use all 5 springs in order to immobilize the bride as much as possible in order to have the hardtail feel but get the special sound that the springs add to the equation.
Is this correct? Do the springs add to the tone and if so can anyone try to describe the tonal difference between a hardtail and an "acquired" hardtail.
Let me stress that I would definetly set the bridge flush to the body and use all 5 springs if I would get a tremolo bridge. It's just the question of tone now
Thanks a lot
