One of the things that got me thinking about this was I started noticing how comforable my non-recessed Floyds felt as compared to my recessed Floyds. My non-recessed Floyds, such as my Wolfgang guitars sit a little higher like a TOM.And I'm here wondering if I should get rid of all the guitars that don't have a TOM
There are two things I absolutely love about the classic TOM bridge. The extra distance between the strings and the body allows me to really dig into the strings and the small part between the bridge and the stop bar where I usually rest my palm. Also, I do have to agree that I get the best chug/palm mute on a TOM.
I'm yet to try a proper FR bridge but I really can't see myself playing anything else that I've lied my hands on so far.
