Well you could but it would take like a REALLY long time. I would have to take apart your whole bridge if you wanna tune that low" This got my worried

Sounds like your guitar guitar tech is a lazy bastard. Anyone who has more than 45 minutes worth of experience with a floating tremolo can do that no problem.
"So often our hands get caught up in ruts of muscle memory. 'Muscle memory' is an accurate term. We get used to doing certain things, without even being aware of them. This ultimately not only shapes and therefore limits our technique, it also shapes what we compose, what we write. We end up thinking still unknowingly trapped in that box." -Adam Nitti
