the tremolo bar on my new strat doesn't screw in but pushes in and then clicks into place. But it is really hard to push in and to get it out... holy cow. it feels like i am gonna rip the bridge out, when trying to extract the bar.
tonite i decided to set it up with a little heavier strings. so i get the bridge out and see that is has 2 allen screws, on the treble side, that adjusts how freely the bar swings/rotates and I see a cut out notch in the trem block below these where the spring/key is located that the notch out of the trem bar bottom clicks into.
is it possible to pull this little clip out and open it up a little wider or to use a small screwdriver and stretch it in place. Anyway, i wanted to ask before tearing anything up Surely this can be set so i don't have to tear the bridge off each time i take it loose.
also, why the 2 allen set screws instead of one. Any difference in using one over the other or both. Also unscrewing these completely has no effect upon the ease of putting in or pulling out the trem bar.
any info appreciated,
