Sorry to butt in Kris but I know you're very busy. It is a very simple procedure but I have never had to do this. You have to alter the stop screw in the back of the guitar which alters the amount of depression you can achieve. You want to put it into bend down mode where it can be pulled down significantly more than fixed. This is an easy alteration of the stop screw but I'd still take it to a store for them to use.

Here is a pic of stop screw

Check out this file also for info

Good luck. If in doubt a shop can do it in seconds. DON'T GET CONNED. It is an EASY CHANGE.

I think you have to slacken the claw screws by what it says in the manual but you should take it to a shop. Any shop can do this it doesn't need to be a Parker dealer. It is literally a couple of minutes job.

You can change it to balanced mode also Kris in which you can bend the bridge up and down. There is balanced (bend up and down), bend down mode (only down not up) and fixed (You can still bend down but it is a lot stiffer and you can bend a string while other strings are sounded and not change their pitch). smile.gif

Hope this info helps.
