Thats what I told him!
Note that Duane Allman and Billy Gibbons have top-wrapped tailpieces. I have had great luck doing this on my Gibsons and have found that the strings have a perfect angle to the bridge. I also think that having the tailpiece screwed solid to the body could help the sound as it seems that there will be better string/tailpiece to body vibration.
to the Marshall Forum James.
Whenever I buy a new Les Paul, the first things I do is take off the crappy strings, chuck the tail bar out a window, and drill six 1/8" holes in the top down by the strap pin, exactly 1" away from the binding. Then I shove the ball ends of a new pack of strings into the holes, jam 'em in with a chop stick, and string it all back up.
No more tuning problems, days of sustain, and no more debates on top wrapping.
Nothing but pure woody tone.
According to Anastasios Stathopoulos it is the bridge that would transfer those musical tones through the belly of the body. The trapeze was to deaden the vibration to the strings and keep them at the bridge. So according to that, then everything that is transferred past the bridge is subjective.
Nylon or metal sadldes another story.
No I use 4s...
You play Bass?
I believe he was referring to the bouzouki when he said that !!
hey, Gibbons was a favorite of Hendrix, but thought it was a bouzouki guy that Hendrix said was the best?
(I like the belly dancers ;-)
Fucking a right Bro!
at the other place
has his bridges like the Golden Gate...
You could fly an aeroplane under them - and he frequently does.
But he gets his tone that way and plays out all the time , uses a Messy Budgie amp...
So, I think you can see by the various replies in this thread that the answer to your question is either Yes or No.
Or a quantum state - neither yes or no, but both at the same time...
...until you actually observe it, when it becomes one or the other.
Much like the Einstein Rosen bridge between two black holes.
Or not at all like it. It's ALL good.
Well, it can't be both at the same time. The tailpiece is either all the way down, or it isn't. It also can't be "neither", since given that the tailpiece exists, it MUST either be tightened all the way down, or not.
Ahh... but it CAN... all the time the case is closed and it is unobserved.
Soon as you open the case and observe the bridge it becomes fixed in place.
All the time the case is closed, it is in an indefinite state between really low and really high.
It becomes a quantum manic depressive bridge - bipolar and all states in-between.
Think Wittgenstein. Think Wigner quasi-probability distributions and the quantum Liouville equation.
Think Tucson to Tucumcari, Tehachapi to Tonapah. Think weed, whites, and wine and you show me a sign...
I'm on my way to buy a new drill bit. Maybe I'll drill mine diagonally from the butt, down by the strap button. or just add a trapeze tailpiece. Yeah yeah, that's it.
Is that Schroedinger's bridge theory? Or Lowell Georges? Or a sort of theoretical hybrid?
