    Floating the tremolo on my cutlass

    It's been decked since I got it. After reading this now popular thread on TGP about the proper way a strat should be set up, it peaked my interest and I thought I would try floating the trem on my cutlass. I have not done this before so I watched this YouTube video which was very helpful. I now have my tremolo floating so that the G string will go up a minor third, the B a major 2nd, and the E a minor second.

    It struck me as odd that the bridge slants forward so far. Just as a sanity check, I wanted to post photos here and ask you to tell me if this looks correct. Going into this I was thinking that the space between the bridge and the body should be even and that I should adjust the pivot screws to do that. They didn't do that in the video though.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    That looks ok to me. That looks very much like how the Luke models come setup as standard

    Thanks for posting the pic! I measured and mine's right at about 1/8 too.
