Hey i tried a used one at the store and it wasnt in that good of condition so im not sure if i experienced the full greatness of it.

I noticed that the tremolo barely dived back at all but it went really far if you dived foward.

Is that normal for s470s?

i know there range isnt as good compared to other locking trems but the range going foward was crazy so...iono

well, it seems a bit beneficial in my eyes to not be able to tighten the tension so much...

Go back to the store and ask the tech to set it up properly for you to test it. You havent tested the full potention of the guitar.

Both of those are old issue with the horrendous Lo-TRSII trems. No adjusters in the back in them.

The bridge may have been set up incorrectly (i.e, its not floating correctly?) Its true it doesnt have as much range when raising notes but not by a great deal.
