Out of curiosity, I was wondering... just how close to a TOM bridge can you put the tailpiece/string-through-body ferrules? My idea was that too extreme of a break angle might cause tuning issues, and might shorten the string life because they'd have a higher chance of snapping directly at the bridge. I was reading stuff around the internet when I came across this page here : https://jacksinstrumentservices.com/setting-a-tuneomatic-tailpiece.html Look at the bottom left picture. That bridge is bent, man. I had never seen that before, I had no idea this is even possible. I thought the bridge was made out of nice solid material, turns out a good amount of them are actually made out of aluminium... the saddles may be brass, but that's all. Has anyone else seen a TOM bridge literally bend like that IRL? You can literally see in that one pic how the E strings aren't even sitting in their saddles anymore. That's crazy!
