(i´m sorry for repeating this text again, but it was in another post, that no one replied...
hi, i´m new here, english is not my mother language, so excuse me if i´ll do some kind of "language-mistake"!
i always take out the tremolo arm when i´m not playing, ´cause some days ago i left it for 2 days in the case, and i noticed that the bridge was a little "pushed-down", because the arm touch the case... (i hope it didn´t made anything bad to the springs, i think not).
anyway, because the arm is always getting in and out in the bridge, the washers may suffer a little, so it´s not too stiff as it was a month ago (the guitar is new). i also noticed that there is a ind of a "gap", it´s a question of not even a milimeter, but the arm is not 1000000% stick to the bridge (i hope you get my idea, it´s like you "feel" the arm with a very very little space inside the hole, that lets it 0,000001 milimeter gap) . is it normal due to the use?
