I've been goofing around on my 660/12 a lot recently, and will find myself reverting to playing blues riffs. I've been bending the high E and B's alot, and it's possible to get a credible full bend on them. These guitar were't built with this in mind, I imagine, so I am wondering - will I be sabotaging my saddles or frets or neck finish down the road performing this unnatural act?

It won't hurt a thing. People do this all the time.

You can bend blues riffs with a 660-12 and even do a little slide. Check out some late '80s John Mayall.
