hardtail strat bridge? and the sound...
Does any one know of a place to get a better hard tail bridge for a strat than the stock? Years ago there were a slew of cast types available.  
Also, will I defeat my purpose of getting some resonance going (hollow maple strat) by having a massive bridge? Does this matter on a string through bridge?  
Thanks in advance.

I'm never without my hardtail strat. This bridge is the shit!!  
$45 nickle  
$60 gold  
Don't have experience with hollows but you may have a point about a heavier bridge and acoustic properties of that guitar. A massive bridge definitely helps electric sustain....might take away from unplugged sound.  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
