String Angle At Bridge

Recommended Posts

Is there anything to this or is it just hype? Some luthiers (e.g., JET, Nikita) have string-through body designs that give the strings a wider angle where they contact the bridge saddle. It's claimed this gives the action a more "slinky" feel compared to typical string-through (basically 90-degree angle) or wrapaound. Also, they mention that this gives the strings more length (vs. TOM). Does it make sense for the part of the string south of the bridge to make any contribution to tone or feel?
