Re: Removing The Stop Bar

if your ZPS is set up correctly, the knife edges won't be perpendicular with the studs. they kind of need to be in free-float mode for accurate adjustment, so first job is to fix that. then set your action and then re-intonate.

the ZPS doesn't keep your trem to fully float. the only pro you'll get by getting rid of it, is a softer action of the trem.
anyway, the answer is yes, you can get rid of the ZPS with no major adjustment.
