No, cause Zakk would just raise the bridge.

yea i just strung up my LP like that a while ago and its pretty sweet, i asked my guitar teacher about it, he was saying zakk wasnt the first one to do it, it was some older guitarist before him, and ive noticed a differant feeling when bending the strings now that i have it strung that way. I emailed my teacher about the faq's on stringing it that way cause he told me a bunch of reasons why this one guy did it, so once he reply's ill post up some of the facts/opinions.

hey

i have just watched zakk wylde on guitar.com
and just like bls and cannibal corpse said zakk said it's
less stress on the strings and when he was on tour with
black label society he only snapped one set of strings on that whole tour.

i dont know wether you have already seen the picture attached by
BLS but you cannot get any clear than that picture.

basically you stick the string under and over.

well, if its string thru body, then you cant do anything special with it. It needs a tail piece.

I will be doing this to my project guitar; I have a tunomatic with a tail piece which will be the bridge.

This is what my guitar teacher said:

Duane Allman was the player I mentioned, but I think
Jim Hall's LP was set up the same, and he used that
from ~58-61.

Tone-wise, stringing over the top of the tailpiece
reduces the tension on the bridge. This decreased
tension can make the guitar sound somewhat warmer, and
may change the quality of the sustain (usually making
it warmer as well). Some players think that the
increased contact with the tailpiece also increases
the sustain, but I find that this is primarilly due to
the tailpiece being adjusted tight into the guitar's
top.

As for feel, because the strings path is much
straighter it is easier for the string to pass over
the saddle, making bending feel smoother. This may
also help aleviate tuning problems caused by strings
binding at the bridge.

Still, I only string one of my tune-o-matics over the
top. On the other guitars I prefer the slightly better
clarity of the standard method, and I want to avoid
wear marks caused by the strings.
