Warning: Large pic.

So the other day my high E broke, no big deal. But when It broke this happened

Notice how the trem is no longer level. And the brass colored bit on one side is in the wood while the other side is poping out about 1/8 of an inch. What do I do?

try taking the strings off and re slotting it. that should give you a clue as to were the problem comes from.

Try to see if you can just add new strings and level the bridge again? if that dont work take it apart and find out what exactly is wrong
"Their always is no such thing as a wrong note!"

Ya, it looks like your bushing has popped out, maybe from the pressure of the string breaking... idk, but try hammering it in, but only glue it if absolutely necessary. If you glue it, it will be a pain in the arse if you ever decide to refinish the guitar.

So, I hammered it back in like Jim said. Hopefully it says. I do need another spring in back though. I imagine they don't cost more than $10.

I bought four from my local guitar store a few days ago - they set me back £2 (~4$) in total.

Are you sure? You can adjust the tension on the springs. No need to add any if you can make the bridge level (in the tail to neck direction) by a simple adjustment.

Unless you're making a big change in the gauge of the strings (heavier), you probably have enough adjustment range with the springs you have.

I am 100% sure. Right now there are only 2 springs and the screws in back are as far in the body as they can go.
