i do some crazy stuff like this from time to time and the guitar itself is not fragile but the trem parts are.
i snapped the trem bar completely in my 777VBK. i just bought a new bar, took the small end that was still in the trem out and viola, i was back to whammying like a madman!
i broke the trem arm post in my DBK doing some sick whammying at a show. there is a post somewhere around here from that show under Jems topic. easy fix. had her playing by the next weekend gig. thanks Rich!
make sure you have the locking plate on the back of the trem block that holds the springs in place or they will fly out. you might chip the paint in the lions claw with the trem. i have seen quite a few Jems w/ a chip or two in the claw.
it's all for the music and show. i've done a few crazy things and luckily, haven't done any unrepairable damage... yet.
