Hey,

I am lowering my Strat bridge right now because it was WAY to high... I mean, it was full out floyd style high which I didn't like, haha.

Anyway, I keep lowering it, but one side is always higher than the other, even if the screws in the back are even. The GBe side of the bridge is always higher than the EAD side. Is it ok to have one screw tightened more than the other, or do the have to be even?

This is it right now, as you can see, the right side is slightly higher than the left. What should I do? Thanks for any help.

they don't have to be even in the back.

the high strings have more tension than the low, that's why that side is pulling more.

the claw in the back is how to equalize this.

if you leave it the way it is in the pic the action will be higher on the GBe side.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

So it's ok if one side of the claw is further forward than the other?

sure.

it's only there to compensate the tension of the strings.

just like it doesn't matter if the tuning heads aren't all in line, you'd likely not be in tune.

or if the saddles were in perfect line, the intonation would be of.

things exist for function rather than form sometimes.

anytime

also, put the back plate back on once you are done. regardless of what eric johnson says, it doesn't effect tone lol. it's there for your protection.

hahah yeah I always put the plate back on, It feels to vulnerable when it's not on.
