TheOtherEric said:I suspect you didn’t get a detailed answer because it’s a pretty complicated issue. E.g.:ValeBliz said:stratamania said:You actually posted a thread asking about that combination which I replied to and gave you useful information.
So what we do know is that the combination is possible but not usually advisable and that is probably what you were advised.
I don’t want to keep going with this over what’s reasonable, but I find incredible after more than a decade of offering the 720 mod Warmoth still don’t seem to have clear guidelines about it, at least on builds that use bridge routed they sell in the first place and with their own necks. Your infos weren’t very useful not because you don’t know, but because warmoth themselves seem confused on the matter, the seles rep didn’t do any better tbh, they replied “we advise not getting it because setup could prove difficult”. Difficult? It’s geometry, either you can set it up with an ok action or you can’t, excluding mods like shimming. Anyway...
1) Would you be ok if your Gotoh 510 were maybe so low it could only dive? Or do you want tons of clearance to pull up?
2) Are you familiar with shims and how to use them?
3) Are you ok with the idea of maybe using a shim (as opposed to being anti-shim for some reason)?
If someone is even asking about this, it probably means they don’t know how to use shims, so it’s easier to just say don’t do it.
And the strings will be closer to the body than normal etc.
ValeBliz...I gave the information as it is in a reasonable manner. What is unreasonable is expecting myself or Warmoth sales to give an absolute answer to something that has a number of variables including the end user, their skills in construction or lack of them etc. If the answer given is not good enough then you lost nothing but you were provided with the information available and it is then up to you to decide to go with those options or not to do so.
