    None. Try both on your bass and you'll see.
     
  3. Thru-body gives this way deeper thump that, in my opinion, is sort of lacking. Stringing it through the bridge still allows the trebles to shine through.

    There's a little blurb about it on the Hipshot website:

    Have seen many basses with hybrid bridges. Meaning they can be loaded either way and have had previous owners strings the low B and E through body and others throug bridge.
    Maybe less string breakage? No clue.:eyebrow:
