Re: rg1527 trem question
sure you can... but it'll re-adjust the bridge angle by doing so. Meaning you'll have to re tune and setup the guitar with that 4th spring.
The bar is there to avoid springs flying away while doing whammy tricks; Happened only once during a setup and it wasn't a pleasant sound. Otherwise, you'll be able to add a fourth spring by having the springs in a 2 + 2 formation while taking out the block-lock mechanism altogether.
