The wrapover bridge was invented by Gibson and debuted on the Gibson Les Paul from 1953. You can only set the overall intonation and string height. Wilkinson's GB-100, PRS Stop-Tail and Leo Quan's Badass bridge are all based on the wrap around bridge.
The shorter string length behind the saddle that the wrapover design affords makes string bending easier compared with Tune-o-Matics.
