TOM with a neck angle (unrecessed floyd/Kahler/any other trem of that sort) is just better. There's no two ways about it. When you look at a violin, the strings aren't flush with the body. It's a stone cold superior way of building an instrument. Sounds better, plays better.
Classical guitars are obviously flatmount, but those aren't played with picks and have no (or infinite) neck radius. Flatmount is prefferable on anything with fingerstyle attack (bass). If you have a curved neck, the strings belong higher up off the body.
I mean, look at the entire spectrum of guitar music. You'll very quickly realize that the vast majority of the good shit (I'm talking about legend tier shit here) is not on flatmount bridges. Not a coincidence. Perhaps you could argue that strats are flatmount, but that's not accurate, since they have a neck radius that usually ends up with their strings being pretty high off the body.
The modern shit that is lower than strat height is just unacceptable. That hipshot BS. If I see someone playing a guitar with that I won't even listen to their music, because I know it's going to be shit.
