UV777BK trem problem - I think it is a problem (shrug)

Well..

I have pics on my comp to show you guys how it is set up, but no way to get them to you.

when I dip drop my bar all the way down to the pickguard, the strings don't get "floppy" and I when I pull up it doesn't seem like it is going high enough....

...On a jem it works fine...

I was thinking... can I bend my bar at a different angle?


PLUS!!!....the bar feels really stiff, in terms of movement.

Strung with .10-.56's

Increase the neck angle you'll have to raise the trem to compensate. Raising the trem give you greater range down and up.
