I have a guitar with a tune-o-matic bridge and I have always put the string on the way your supposed to, but I saw somebody with their strings put in down the tune-o and around up. What is the reason for this? I'll try and find a pic if its hard to understand.

It adds more sustain but in my opinion it makes it harder to play.

thats not a tune o matic. i think there is a bridge similar to the tune o matic but it has grooves on top for the strings. thats the way you are suppose to do that kind of stop bar.

Zakk does this and he claims it increases sustain and reduces tension...

^ That pic is why you should never let a bassist touch your guitar. heh.

Nah, it should work fine, but might reduce sustain, and intonation (poss, or at least you won't be able to adjust it much)
