Whammy Effect on Acoustic Guitar

What could be the long term damage from pushing the body back and the headstock forward for a sort of whammy effect.  I've seen it done before and tried it a few times but I'm afraid of snapping the neck on my guitar.


I'm afraid doing that especially over a long period of time would be detrimental to your acoustic guitar.  Any whammy affects should be done by string bending while fretting a note.

Another cool trick (be careful not to prick your fingers on the ends on the strings sticking out of the tuners) is to reach up above the nut and push down on the strings slightly after hitting a note or notes. This will raise the pitch.
