This is a typical SG TOM setup for me. The strings don't jump out of the saddles but the angle is as shallow as workable. Now here's where everyone gets to jump in: I think that the reason bends feel easier when the tp is raised is that there is less weight since the length of the string from bridge to tailpiece is reduced. My evidence: no break angle or string behind the bridge, easy bends, like whipped butter. lol. One of my peeves with most trems is all the unsprung weight behind the bridge.
