Re: floyd rose bridge question (simple)
It's probably just locked too tight (the string), I pull all the way up till my trem hits wood, never breaks. I have never broken a string pulling up, and pulling up on a trem is how I use a trem most of the time. I have Jems & RG's. Yeah the string gets a little squished (maybe) but not that much. Like I said my guess is the string was just clamped in to tightly. You should be able to pull as far as your trem will let you and no breaking. I do it all the time. Either just to tight or just one of those things. Strings break, it's part of life being a guitarist. Sometimes even the strings can be a bad batch (not usually). If you're having a lot of strings breaking constantly you may have a problem, but that could be a number of things , but no matter what you should be able to pull up on a trem all you want with no breakage or loss in tune as long as it's set up right. Don't let anyone tell you not to pull up so far, they do not know what they're talking about (all due respect).
