    i actually *like* this about bending. i dig the looser feel my rg570 trem has when i bend than the tightness of bends on my fixed bridge rg7621.

    $0.02

    Yeah, but i hate how all the other strings go flat when that happens. See, i was trying to get as many advantages of fixed bridge guitars as i could while still retaining the floating bridge.

    agreed on both the flat strings and about retaining a floating bridge.

    that's cool. do you bend strings while letting others ring? usually when i bend, it's just one string while i'm funk'n around, so having the other strings go flat doesn't really bother me.

    Not really, Only on Iron Maiden solos. lol. I just dont want things moving around unless i decree it. The biggest thing to bother me -- the fact that on a regular floyd, when you tip the guitar forward or back, it goes flat & sharp bothers the hell out. Plus, the stiffness of the tremsetter'ed bridge is just something i lvoe.

    Ha ha, an edict of string bending?
    I agree though, however I do a fair amount of bending w/ open notes as drones, so it pisses me off a lot.

    My first reaction this (once again a million years ago, when I was only 15) before I ever though of blocking the bridge / using a trem setter / chaning spring set up was to actually tape (as in duct tape) the bridge down. Needless to say it didnt work at all, and looked really stupid :lol:
