How do I fix this? My bridge (which is a regular strat style tremelo) is being lifted up by my strings like it is raised up insted of securely on the body? Also is it because I use heay 12 guage strings?

You may want to tighten your neck relief a little, but just because you're moving into heavy string territory.

Add another spring to the back of your trem, and tighten the claw in the back there.

It's generally advised to have the bridge raised a little bit.

But yes, it's because of the change of gauge in your strings. IF you want to have the bridge flush with the body again, you'd have to work a lot of with string and spring tension. Takes A LOT of trial and error.

Personally I like mine better when it's raised...better so if I use the whammy I won't slam down and maybe take a nice chunk out of the body.

I added 1 more spring now theres all 5 and it seemed to go down, but when i retuned it, it made my tunning go to reg E when it was at Eb.

heavy guage strings, tuned sharp?

Yeah, that'll be a real trem-breaker there.

I dunno... Start sticking business cards behind the block.

its tuned half a step down, a blues standard type of tunning.

Pull on your strings nad do some really large bends with hte strings so the strings stretch out a bit and stay in tune better.

ok kids, once more, generally heavy strings (.12+) are not meant to tune to standard tuning simply because the thicker the string the tighter it has to be to reach standard eadgbe tuning. if you are simply dead set on playing on .12s then tighten the claw (the thing the springs hook to that screws into the body) and replace your springs with thickers heavier ones....then settup your guitar (neck and bridge saddles) for the heavier strings since you'll probably tweak the neck with that heavy of a guage
