I read somewhere that putting vaseline jelly on the nut (or getting a graphite nut) will help keep strings in tune when using the whammy bar. Is this true? I just have a normal plastic nut for my strat
#2
ha, wouldnt it actually make the strings loosen easier... cuase if you put vaseline on it wouldnt it reduce the friction on the nut so the string would be able to slip easier?

Take the plate off the back, and re-arrange the springs in the shape of a V.

Put one spring in the first hole on the bridge, and connect that to the second claw. Put the other spring in the last hole in the bridge, and connect that to the 4th claw. Hope you can understand that lol.

Or use 5 springs in the back. It's harder to use the bar but it works.

I have the V shape with 2 springs on an old strat and it works great. You can abuse the bar alot.

Crush up a pencil lead into a dust, and mix that with Oil In One(i think is the name) and rub it in the nut grooves.

all this oil stuff sounds like its going to leave something sticky and gross on your nut, which will get onto the first fret and your fingers while you play, and make your guitar a really bad experience for awhile... id advise to get the graphite nut.

fender suggests chapstick or nut sauce.

but keeping the bridge level works even better.

Like Stop Messin' said, putting 5 springs work very well. The whammy bar will be a little harder to use but it just matter of time to get used to. The only issue is that you can't use the bridge on semi-floating mode.
