Hey UG

I currently have 0.09 strings on my guitar. I have a Fender strat. In the back, there are 4 springs. Now the problem is that that strings are kinda 'loose'. Could I fix this by getting a spring out and how do i do this?

Thanks

you mean they bend too easily? if so, just go up a string gauge.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

No, what I mean is that they hit the fretboard to easily while playing, which produces some buzz tones.

move up to .010 gauge strings. thicker gauge will help create more tension, and most likely result in less buzz.

You atleast need a heavier gauge of strings. I use 3 springs for .10.

Thicker strings are good, and also train your finger strength, but...if there is buzzing you need to raise the action. Yes tighten your springs in that back, that might help you out a little bit.

Let me know if you have any other questions dude.

you mean your action is too low? or the truss rod needs to be adjusted?

I am guessing that you have it tuned properly lol. There should be screws to those springs in the back. If your strings keep detuing (flat) then you should definitely tighten those screws. If that doesn't work, or if your strings then go sharp, then change the action.

look at the guitar set up thread in this forum, to see how to set up a strat type floating bridge guitar.

there are several variables involved which are described in detail, if you have any questions just post in that thread to get an expert answer.
