I've seen a lot of stopbars set with the screws adjusted in the up position to raise the stopbar to lessen the string angle over the saddles. I haven't seen anything covering this topic before. I'm not totally convinced that because the screws are long enough to raise the stopbar that this makes it correct, I could be wrong. There is a lot of tension on the stopbar, raising it would increase the stress on the threaded inserts and scews that support it. I'm not saying it would break or become loose by doing this but I would like to know what was the intension of this design and how it was intended to be used. To be mounted in the lowest postion or to be adjusted to correct string break angle. Anyone know anything about this subject?
