    It's interesting because both my old KWS strat and my current EJ have the bridge wired into a tone control, and both had noticeably fatter tones from the bridge with the tone on 10 than any other strat I've had.

    It PROBABLY results in a slightly lower resonant peak. Come to think of it, back when I had a SSS strat, I never really used the bridge at all, and it's only since I took out my SSH guard and started using SSS with a mid/bridge tone in recent years that I've discovered how much I like that position in certain situations.
