Re: Need help setting up pl1660
The proline bridges are usually a ways off the body, so yes lowering them will start to interfere with the pickups. It sounds more like you might need to adjust the trem springs though, especially if it was set properly with only 5 strings. Adding the 6th will pull the trem forward and you'll need more pull to counter it from the springs. I think both of my pl1770s have 4 springs. Also, if they're original springs, they're from the late 80s so they may just need to be replaced.
