Trying to decide on a bridge for a new Warmoth 5-string build. (Since this is a new, from-scratch build I don't need to get bogged down in the "will this sound better than a stock bent-plate bridge?" questions, I just need a bridge that will work reliably, and Hipshot seems to get good marks.)
So my question is: Presuming one doesn't
want to take advantage of the A style's thru-body stringing capabilities, are there any other significant differences (functionally, or otherwise) between the A style
and B style
? Any reason to choose one over the other?
