Talking String-thru guitars!!!

I really don't understand why string-thrus are not more common? They aren't hard to make...........right? I think they look better IMO. Wouldn't they also be a little cheaper to produce as well? You wouldn't have to supply (buy) that extra metal piece (bridge). I mean cheaper for guitar companies BTW. Not much, but when you multiply the savings by thousands of guitars, no?! I would think better sustain as well. Anyone ever see the Custom Shop Wolfgang string-thrus, WOW!

Re: String-thru guitars!!!

Well, plenty of guitars are made string-thru. It's definitely my favorite as far as non-floyd setups go. My 2nd custom build has a korina body with a string-thru bridge and I love it.

Actually not many guitars are made with string-thrus!

Re: String-thru guitars!!!

Schecter makes TONS of guitars with string-thru body construction. There are many Jacksons with it as well, even the lowest end models that sell for around $200. ESP also have several models with string-thru body. Dean too. Etc. In other words, as I said, "plenty" lol.

Re: String-thru guitars!!!

i have a 7620 and i was dyin to find a six string version of it with string thru. then i saw my 421. ha ha. at that point that was the only RG i had seen with string thru and a "standard bridge". i would love to have a string thru 7620, (blocked the trem long ago), but now all i run into are the korean ones. dont even know the model number...

Re: String-thru guitars!!!

I'd love to have a black (sorry!) Fender American strat hardtail with a maple neck with my EMG's in it.

the strat I have now isn't a hardtail, and IMO the tremelos on the strats are pretty much useless.

I did see that, it looks pretty cool except I prefer an EMG 85 in the bridge. The strat I have now has 2 EMG SA's and an EMG 85.



Not really a fan of Corgan, but his guitar does look interesting.
