How were strats setup back in the day?
I have googled and read a ton of info but was wondering how were strats setup in the 60s? Did they float them or block the trem? As I understand most would have been setup with 9s as there wasn't a ton of options then.
Reason I ask is I have carpal tunnel and I have been experimentiing. Is there a standard distance a claw should be away from the cavity? Mine is about 1/4 inch away, 3 springs and the trem sits flush with the body.
Any insight would be appreciated.
