Angry 13-62 strings tuning help | please

sorry for the disturbance

first time i'm using 13-62s with electric, can't seem to make the correct adjustments.

so i put the strings (always used 0.10s or 11s till now btw), the bridge literally stands up. also had to tighten the truss rod because the strings got so far away from the fretboard.

anyways, tighten the truss rod i did. i then had to tighten the bridge from the back (100% tightened) still no good. it's still erect. i been like dealing with it for 3 hours man, can't get it right. i'm about to lose my mind.

the thing won't get in tune, neither the bridge will go down. it goes down when i loosen the strings, but thats no good for me.

(ibanez js1000)

the hell am i supposed to doż

You need more springs. I assume you mean you tightened the claw? It's screwed all the way down to the wood? A picture of the spring setup might be helpful if it's not too much trouble.

^ pic not from me but yeah, claw screws tightened all the way right now, no more room. the bridge still gets up way too high on standard tuning. i got 3 springs as well.

what tuning are you using?

you're going to need more springs to start.
