I have played a Ric for years but just bought my first 5 string because I needed the low B for a specific cover. I got a Peavey Grind because I felt it had the best price/quality ratio and will only play if for the tunes that require a low B. Anyway, the bridge has two ways that the string can be threaded through. The strings can be run through the back of the bridge, like on the Ric, or up through the bridge through the body. Is there a specific name for this kind of bridge and what are the advantages/disadvantages of routing the strings one way verses the other?
