This is the first time I've had a guitar which has a bridge that is suitable for a whammy bar, and I've noticed that when I bend more than one string, the other strings kinda go out of tune, but once I stop bending it goes back to normal tuning, this happens on my mates' iBanez, I take it this is normal correct?

Don't know, I think it shouldn't.

How you know you have too many guitars...

It was just the first thought I had about it. I don't know more than you do.

maybe cause your bridge is setup for floating and it happens like on a double locking bridge, probably like your friends ibanez.

If you want it to stop and which will make it dive only: take the back cover off and screw the 2 screws inside so the bridge rests on the body and wont pull up from a bend and then retune.

Wrong. Don't worry about it, all strat bridges do this. But this can be solved by adding a hipshot tremsetter.

UGLY EDIT: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Jvl0fLOzwi8 Watch that video, some people don't wanna drill a tiny hole in their guitars but it's worth it. And if a pro does it then there's no risk at all.

Oh, I guess I just haven't noticed that when I've played Strats. Maybe it's because I don't bend more than one string at a time.

more springs would probably work too.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
