This is a routing template for a recessed wilkinson tremolo bridge. This way you can raise the bar and raise the pitch. How deep would I have to route the recess in order to get the maximum amount of pitch raising capabilities?
if these are the best days of our life, then we are in big trouble
you can allways downtune to avoid breaking a string, and if it helps strings tend to break around a Gb no matter what gadge they are, so if you want alot of pitch shift out of it you could downtune a little, maby a half or a full step so you break less strings.
^ then to get the same note he has to bend that much further- or change the entire key of the song

not a good idea less he plans on playin down all the time- and never with a cd

plus- it just doesnt sound right sometimes wiht certain songs- ya dig?
