Re: strings breaking near floyd rose bridge?
Strings will almost always break at the point where they pass over the bridge saddle - which is totally understandable if you think of it like this: take a thin piece of metal - try to break it - it won't..... now, pick a point and bend the metal about that point, flatten it, bend it again at the same point - repeat a couple of times and the metal will break at this point - a string passing over a bridge saddle behaves in exactly the same way, so, at least eventually, this is where your string will fail.
A Tremonti SE with a Floyd sounds like a very cool idea - pics when finished please?
