1. Does the whammy bar raise the pitch as well as lower it?
2. How far can it change the pitch. I heard it was 2 1/2 steps, but I'm not sure.
3. Why do they call it tremolo bar? Shouldn't it be vibrato bar? (change in pitch, not volume)

Thanks in advance.

If you have whats called a "floating tremolo" it can raise it too otherwise no. Thats about all I can answer, I play a Les Paul lol

Floating bridges like Floyd Roses allows you to raise or lower the pitch. I'm not sure exactly how far it can do each, but a good amount. But if you don't have a floating bridge but have a bar on it, like on strats or whatever, you can only lower the pitch. I wouldn't reccomend doing that though as it will detune your guitar pretty quickly. I dunno why it's called a trem bar, I always thought it was just another name for it, there's a bunch...

Because Leo Fender is a fucking genius

Locking trems should be able to Raise to a perfect fourth, if im not mistaken.
