I just bought this fender stratocaster 70s reissue guitar and i think there might be a problem with it.

When i put the strings on the guitar the bridge started to pull up with tension as if i was using the trem bar. Is this something wrong or does this usually happen I never owned a strat before

it happens when the strings pull harder than the bridge. just flip over the guitar and tighten the bridge - trem screws. if u need more pull add a spring.


example of 5 springs and 2 screws.
(3 screws is prob all u need)
