    Is it better to string through the body or like normal on the bridge? What's the purpose of doing one over the other?

    Search this forum for discussions. Neither is "better".

    Some like string-through and say they prefer it; many people here can't hear any difference.

    String-through requires longer strings than normal for the scale length.
