Yes, I believe that the bridge plate should be parallel to the body, for best performance, intonation etc. When changing guages of string, adjust the tension on the bridge using the screws anchoring the claw holding the tremolo springs underneath the plastic cover on the back of the guitar. But you will not be able to change tunings easily and quickly, back & forth. Strat man Dwight

Good replies by strat man Dwight Listmayer but you can achieve those tunings with your regular every day strings, usually lights on a rose, 9 42s.
