So I was playing one of my favorite songs, Panama, on guitar, and i did a whammy bomb and pulled up, pulling every string off the guitar. Is that normal if I pulled up too much? Or can it be because of how I stringed the guitar, or anything else? PS- the strings detached from the trem, not from the nut.

Any comments/help would be appreciated

Sorry, but that's just awesome...

Did you get the lock blocks in the saddles tight enough?

they ALL pulled out of the bridge-locks?
weird
maybe there wasnt enough string down inside of the locking area
that happened to me once, and it was because i didn't put the string all the way down to the bottom
or maybe the screws werent tight enough

or, maybe the strings and tremolo couldn't handle your epicness? i'm kidding.

that's never happened to me before. im gonna say you didn't tighten the strings enough at the bridge.

that there is a reason why FR style trems just don't float my boat, FAR too overcomplicated.

Thanks guys, I'm pretty sure it's the string locks, it was my first time stringing guitars with a trem actually :P
Only if I had a camera running.. that woulda been awesome.

You probably didn't screw the string locking saddles tight enough. Make sure you stick the short end into the allen hole, and use the long end to get enough leverage to tighten the saddles. It happened to me before xD
