How to properly float the Cutlass/Stingray Tremolo/Vibrato Question…

Hi There!

I’m loving the new Cutlass I got but have been experimenting with the tremolo and have a question:

To float the bridge, do you recommend raising the two posts, so that the bridge remains parallel to the body, or doing it more like vintage bridge, where the posts stay down, and the back of the bridge pushes forward, so that it isn’t parallel to the body?

Since it comes flush from the factory against the body, I’ve left the post down, and have it tilting up to float, but most two post trem systems, you lift the posts to keep it parallel, so I’m unsure what would work best.

Thanks,

Gary
