Deep Water: The Down-Tuning Advantages of a Fender Jaguar Bridge System

With a properly set-up Jazzmaster/Jaguar-style bridge system, you can down-tune from standard tuning, and the guitar will still be in tune, and, as a bonus, you can still use the tremolo bar, though only go down in pitch when down-tuned. This also can allow you to keep playing if you break a string in the middle of a song.
