Someone posted this over at reranch. Looks like a pretty cool idea to me.

Clever and a bit ghetto, I like it.
I would remove pickguard/pickups before installing though.
Knowing my luck, I would stick a screw straight into a pickup or 2 and royally fuck them up.

I don't like this idea at all. Surely if you change strings to a different gauge you would have to remove it?

looks that way

there are other kits available that are adjustable and do the job properly (for more money though)

I don't know? Wouldn't you just adjust the spring tension to account for the change in string tension to maintain the floating position?
Kind of how you adjust the spring/string tension with the trem lock on a Jazzmaster?

That'w what was going to say. crank down the spring tension screws if it is a problem. just like you would do if you drastically change string sizes. you want the bridge to float a certain height anyway so you would adjust the tension on the springs to give the desired height.

Spose. I maybe don't like anything at the bridge not being adjustable, I suppose.

Looks like the door locks on the shitter stalls at my high school before I graduated. Almost 20 years ago. Laughing
