Can I make a pull up route on a normal 2 point strat trem with no locking nut, and non recessed?
#2
It can be done.
Best to have someone who's done it before handle the routing, however. It's pretty easy to hash things up.

99.9% of trems that can pull up are recessed

Ok thanks for the feedback, are there any pics of a pull up trem that isn't recessed? I prefer to reach over the strings.

I guess it depends on how far you have to pull up for it to "count." Tons of people have their standard 2-point strat trems set up to float. If you want extra space to pull up you just route out a little bit of the cavity where the block hits the body.

Ok so all I have to do is route out a cavity and that's fine? It seemed like there has to more to it because I haven't heard of anyone doing it.

What else would you need? Some types of trem are better suited than others, you're not going to get a ton of range out of a 6-screw without some tuning issues, but that's all there is to it with adding upward range to a standard strat-style trem.
