Have you tried an EQ pedal yet? See if someone has one you can borrow. It's pretty amazing what a little eq will do to your tone.

I'm not surprised some of your strings snapped when you went up almost 2 steps on a couple strings. Something probably isn't sitting right because of the extra tension on the thicker strings.

Thanks for the heads up! I had to get the cheaper wraparound when I did my SG project because my budget was next to nothing. I can use this one instead, now.

On a related note: How do you like that Purple Wind? I was thinking about grabbing one of the Hotones (or more than one) for some fooling around and maybe a different sound or two.

The easy answer is no. Floyds are generally one tuning and one tuning only. If it's floating, you will have to re-set it up everytime you change tunings.
Basically, everything toodeep said, too.

A monkey with one arm could install the new solderless system. If GC techs can't handle that, someone needs to hit them on the head with a tack hammer.

I used to have an area '58 in the neck of my strat copy and I loved it.
For your metal bridge pickup, I would second the alumitone or the TB-6.

Unfortunately, with the floyd type floating trem, you're going to have to pick one tuning and stick with it. You aren't going to be able to change tuning without a full setup.
