    How high can you pull up with your bar?

    With my Ibanez, I can pull up about 6-7 half steps. Ie, first fret can pull up to the 6th, 12th fret can pull up to the pitch of the 17th.

    Anyone with a Wilky willing to wrench on their guitar in the name of science? :cool:

    on my carvin i could make the g string go up about 3 -4 half steps with the wilky but the hardware is less crucial for range than the route is. The hardware works more for tuning stabilty. I always end up with a little binding in the nut with extreme trem usage with
    the wilky.

    I think a Wilk with a licking nut might be the way to go. My carvin had issues, but only at the nut. With a locking nut you would get the whammyism, but without difficult string changes

    And you would also get no fine tuners.

    ^this^ It's okay. I decided to block it anyway. I feel more creative without a trem and like it over use it when i have one.
