Bridge still looks a bit like string tension is higher than spring tension even with the 12. 

I think option 1 or 3 are your best bet, leaning towards 3. You might try the 11 with 9-52 too.

Thanks Billy, yes I'm thinking 3 is best. Thanks for the tips.

Tin Machine - thanks, yes there is definitely a difference in spring performance. I have three 10s and they all require different tension to balance the strings.

Man, that is a TOUGH battle.
I guess if you think of it like " no parker will ever be too complicated for me now!" then the time invested isn't so bad.
I still haven't been able to get the last one I bought (for way too much money) set up properly. Getting the bridge height, truss rod, pickup height and spring tension right (just for 09-42) has taken over 10 hours, so far....
