Hello! Whenever I choose to use my tremolo bar in my Fender 60's Classic Stratocaster, my guitar seems to go out of tune. I never had this problem before changing from .9 D'addarios to .10 Ernie Ball strings. Also, I can't do as deep divebombs as before. Is there any way to fix these problems?

Have you set your guitar up properly for the change?

It may also be because of the fact you've got heavier strings on. I know the guitar came with 10s, so could you do the same as the 9s without it going out of tune?

well, its a vintage trem. its not supposed to do deep dive bombs. its just supposed to do slight vibrato. and its probaly from going up in gauge. you need to readjust the springs in the trem cavity until the trem is level with the body.

well, fender's aren't usually meant for big vibrato abuse because they don't have locking nuts, its more for just a little vibration, not divebombs, unless you get a locking nut.

It has to be right parallel to it? It's like in a 10 degree angle right now.

My friend is having the same problem with his strat, he said it might be a good idea to get locking tuners after he sets the guitar up.

It seems like a good idea but i dunno XD i don't have a strat

I got it fixed. I'm one E-string poorer now, but now it's 100% level to the body Thanks again. Now I just have to hope it keeps in tune :=)

Did you stretch your strings?
