Sounds like a keeper to me! :D
Odd that there should be a tear out like that eh? Especially on such an important component. I don't think it's going anywhere soon now!

That's pretty thin where it let go, though, and the string tension is high and constant...

... yup! Not going anywhere, anytime soon! :lol: And it's not a 15" fretboard radius - what a dill I am! - closer to 12"...

Very chime-y sounding; gotta keep the heel of my hand off the darn bridge... it had 5 springs on it when I got it, and the spring claw was wound right in to compensate for the wobbly anchor. I've got 3 springs on it and the bridge is floating about 5mm off the surface of the body.... :roll: :lol:

A constant problem for me too. When you've been raised on hard tails and resting the palm on the bridge, moving to a trem really feels foreign, like using my left hand or sumthin'. I'm already clumsy enough. :seestars:
