I have had a discussion with a friend recently, involving Floyd Rose guitars and the way they behave during bends.
The issue is that, since the bridge floats, by design, when performing a string bend the bridge would move along (albeit less) with it, making the distance to bend different than those of guitars with a fixed bridge.
This influences the learning process of the technique, and will it be necessary to relearn when changing to a fixed bridge system.
I was wondering if is there any way to address this issue, by making the bridge not move (or move considerably less)? Maybe something involving the springs?
