Easy way to solve the break angle pr... 

Hi,
My guitar has very poor string break angle after I lower the bridge saddle. After trying diffferent ways, I finally use the way that they string with the 12-whole bridge. I use the existing 6-whole bridge of my guitars and wrap the low E to the A whole, the A string to the D whole, etc. That leave the high E without any adjacent whole to use. For this E string you just wrap it over again through the E whole and secure the end at the B string. Basically one whole must accomodate 2 strings, except the high E. In my 2 guitars each whole is large enough to accomadate 2 strings, no problem.
If you want to see a picture what they look like let me know.

Wow, you must have some heavy diameter holes on your tieblock. Good idea though.

Knots and washers would be a simpler solution. In your case BIG washers
