This happened with my cheap Jackson, so I'm wondering if this is the standard for Floyds and such. I suppose I like my action a bit low (about 2mm at the 12th fret roughly). On my old guitar with a Floyd, I had to keep the action far higher than that in order to be able to raise the pitch with the Floyd at all positions. If I kept it how I liked it, raising the pitch with the Floyd would cause dead notes on about all frets about the 12th (because the strings would physically hit the frets). I'm wondering if this is an isolated incident, or whether action really has to be kept higher with a floating trem. Tell me - if you have a floating trem, how low do you keep your action? Is it higher than your fixed bridge guitars? Have you had the same experience as me, and how do you get around it (hopefully more than just "don't pull the bar up")?
