Re: Which would you choose: Fender Strat Harttail or Tuneomatic bridge?
This is one of the points of guitar I feel so damn strongly about.
Hardtail feels MILES better than tune-o-matic, my palm likes hardtail more and it sits at a better position for the sort of picking I play, not to mention the way the strings seem to feel. It annoys me when Jackson, ESP and various other 'superstrat' brands opt for tune-o-matic instead of hardtail in their Fixed Bridge models. Fair enough if the top is really arched and contoured to the point that a hardtail bridge wouldn't sit perfectly flush to the body, but otherwise, c'mon, hardtails, people!
