I've got a Yamaha ERG 121 with a Vintage Tremolo. Its got 2 springs at the moment. Should I add more? Whats the difference between 2,3,4 and 5 springs? I know Hendrix uses 5 springs.

I think the difference in number of springs improves pull-back when using the trem and helps keep you in tune. Wouldn't go with anything less than three though.

if you don't lube contact points and set up the bridge for 2 springs (float)

then you're going to have a devil of a time keeping that guitar in tune.


if the guitar is in tune, and balanced, even with bridge use, then you've found
the right amount of springs for your set up.
