What are the advantages of both styles (not sure it mounted is the right word but i mean with and without the plastic side bits with screws).

Jenny needs to sow her wild oats with random Gibsons and Taylors she picks up in bars before she settles down with a PRS.

Well, what do you mean? If a pickup isn't mounted then it's rattling around in the guitar.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
i think he means ring mounted vs. direct mounted to the body, maybe.

With direct body mounted, you might get better transference of your tone wood's tonal character, but that would depend on the quality of the pickup and the electronics.

There will be a difference, but it's usually so small, its not always easily noticeable, especially if your pickups are not designed to maximise the impact of tonewood character.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.
