So, i had a quick question, how the hell does steve vai do some of that crazy stuff on the whammy bar without breaking a string, i mean i can do some crazy stuff, but i see steve vai lifting the guitar with just the whammy bar. I try that and i break a string, are there any tips on not breaking strings with the whammy from a jem 7v.

You should be able to use the bar all the way in both directions without breaking strings. If you are breaking strings, the only thing I can think of is that your locks might be too tight. That was my problem the first week I had my RG20061. To fix it I just didn't have the string locked in as tightly at the bridge, and I haven't broken a string on that guitar since.

Wouldn't you be better off loosening at the nut? At least there would be no chance of having a string slip out!

I knew how tight to have them at the nut, I just got a little carried away with the bridge. Like I almost bent my allen wrench tightening them. Because I really didn't want a string to slip out.
