I have a 2007 EJ strat 2 tone sunburst. I really love this guitar but the string tension is tight and stiff espiecially from the 12th fret up. This guitar is stock with 5 springs. Could I remove 2 of them and would this help with the tension? Thanks

sounds like your strings just need to stretch, releasing tension of the strings will lower the tuning...

About the springs, my replacement trem for me strat came with 5, but I only use 3, makes bends easier....

But theres no reason why i cant be free like a raspberry stuck to the back of a horny elephants ass.

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

I also only use 3 springs. But remember if you go to 3 springs you need to adjust your bridge and more than likely the truss rod. I use 3 springs with the rear of the bridge slightly raised.
