I Googled "WonderBar tremolo instructions" and saw that someone has the pages from Washburn's manual out there on Pinterest.   Just a suggestion...  I'm not sure what electronics has to do with it, other than maybe a grounding point.

I detest Pinterest -- unless you sign up, you get like TEN SECONDS of browsing before it locks you out. Digging just a bit, the Pinterest images are echoes from VintageWashburn.com.... whiiiiich ceased to exist almost two years ago. ::)  Here's the thumbnails; maybe someone can enlarge them.

FWIW, the four-page "install manual" is really just two pages, & one of 'em is how to install a through-neck locking nut.

While (IMNSHO) an improvement over the Kahler trem, there are many similarities between these toploaders, like shimming the trem body to achieve proper height. Shims a.k.a. "stackers" or "adapters." For example --

Atthis point, I'm going to guess that you don't want to install one, but rather can't figure out how to adjust one. If that is the case, then everyone who thinks they might ever be in such a position REALLY needs to copy this while it exists online.
