Floyd rose height - bass/treble heights - difference?


I'm getting more comfortable with setting up my own guitars, but have a question regarding Floyd rose trem height.

To generally get the action I want, but without buzz on the low E, my trem is at a slight angle. I.e. the high E ends up at 2/32" and the low E at 5/64". It is still correctly parallel to the body.

Is this going to any form of technical / wear and tear issue?

That's typical of how people set them up. I'm not aware of it causing any problems.

Yeah, I set my guitars up like that mainly because I use a heavier bottom string. That way there is room for my bottom end strings to breath while my high strings are ready to shred! haha
