Hey, so for recording porposes I'm blocking my 2000NOS Trem with a Tremol-no I bought a couple of months ago, it's the right one for the guitar, but the factory claw is smaller than the Tremol-no claw.

The question is, do I have to drill a new hole? What problems would it cause to leave the screws crooked as long as the claw itself is aligned with the trem?

As a detail, before I switched to the 2000NOS bridge I had the factory SE trem, I put the Tremol-no on and took it off again, saw that I have to drill for the screws to be perpendicular and took it to a tech, but the ****** just installed the thing like I did, didn't drill a thing. It was the first time in 4 years taking my guitar to a tech instead of doing it myself, after this I probably won't take it to a tech for another 4 years.

Also installed noisy pots and kept the unique allen wrench of the tremol-no for himself.
Crooked like this I mean

That tech sounds like a douche.

I'd contact the manufacturer directly to hear what he has to say. I contacted him about some issues I had with the unit I installed, he was very helpful.
