i got new strings on yesterday and i'm wondering if that might be the problem. I was playing my guitar just now and saw that my floyd rose style bridge was lifted off of the body surface. it does have a whammy bar. can someone tell me what happend and how do i fix this? or would it be ok if i just left it unfixxed?

the gauge is heavier, so its pulling it up.

tighten the two screws in the back cavity.

if u need more help u can even add a spring.


example of 2 screws and 5 springs.

There should be a plastic cover in the back of your guitar. Open that and you will se exacly what Jenny posted.
