I have a stock Dean Vendetta xmt, and I need to know what I need to do to drop the tuning lower. I have removed a spring, one of three, to make whammy bar easier to use, but will that cause problems with down tuning?

you'll need the spring back in for drop tuning, and most likely a heavier gauge of string
I HATE YOU...

if you find that the bridge lifts at it's ass end, and adjusting the trem screws doesn't help, you'll want to put the spring back in.

i say, put that spring back in when you gauge up for the lower tuning. those thicker gauges will create more tension and pull on the bridge.

he's suggesting you detune. remove springs.
take a toothpick, cram it into the hole with some wood glue.
screw the screw back in thru the toothpick.

dont put any tension on that screw for at least a day.


let dry and see if you can return tension to it without it flying back out.


if it still can't hold the tension, then use wood epoxy. shove it in the hole.
let dry, and then drill a new hole for that screw.
it'll be stronger than before.
