Hi there!


I am a complete and utter NOOB when it comes to electric guitars. My first guitar I bought in September 2016 and it is a Shecter Omen S-II Walnut Satin. I am wondering if I can change the way the guitar is strung. Instead of the strings being fed thru the guitar's body, is there a way I can pay to have someone string it to a bridge?

Also, does doing the above make playing songs (70's & 80's rock) any easier?


Thank you!

I've seen some guitars with a TOM-type bridge where the strings go in from the side facing the pickups and wrap around. I don't know how well that would work with a regular TOM bridge though.

Floyd Rose style bridges don't string through either, but that's more intensive.

Also, does doing the above make playing songs (70's & 80's rock) any easier?

Nope. A guitar, so long as it's properly set up, will have an impact on the style of playing. Some stuff may warrant a locking-trem system (Floyd Rose) if you want to dive-bomb, but again, it won't make the work easier. That can only be done through practice.
