    Sounds like a great idea - you gotta love a company that tries to adapt, improve, and change with the times.

    I'll rather mod my old one. Shouldn't be that hard.

    Don't mean to be picky, but...

    it's called a string anchor, not the bridge.

    I didn't know you couldn't use non tapered strings on a Warwick bridge. I just put TI Flats on mine and those aren't tapered.
     
  7. Usually, its just the B string on a 5 string - it just won't fit. I have also had trouble in the past with some E strings but not many.

    Never had any problems that a little squeeze on the windings just above the ball from a pair of duckbill pliers couldn't solve.

    Actually I should say the only problem I actually did have was getting strings with "yarn" on it to go into the tuner hole.
