I've just got my first Fender standard strat MiM yesterday. Whenever I try to tune it all the strings go flat, so after repeating the same process twice, I noticed the bridge became tilted up. I remember I had a similar problem with my first FR guitar. Is there a specific way to tune a vintage tremolo bridge?
Just keep going until all your strings are to pitch. This takes a while as when one string is tuned one way, the others like to go in the opposite direction. If the tremolo is way tilted up you need to tighten the screws on the spring claw in the back.
"Air created the greenness. And once you've got something, that leads to otherness." - Karl Pilkington.
You need to tighten the springs in the back cavity, your issue is that the tension of your strings at tuned pitch is higher than that of the tremolo springs, meaning the bridge will continue to tilt until the point where the tension balances off.
