    I think you would have a hard time getting the strings, particularly the E string, to bend around that tight a space without breaking the windings. If you want to have a bridge as close to the butt as possible, I would suggest going with a string through set up.

    ^ Agreed. This works fine for guitars (see anchored Bigsby trem units), but I see problems with the gauge and tension of bass strings.
