no you either need to lighten the gauge of your strings or add another spring to the back. one or the other. dont tighten the screws in the back.

Gibson SG special (W/ S.D. Jazz(N) & JB (B))

not correct.

yes, its fine. if u put on a Very heavy gauge or jumped up more than a couple of gauges, then u wouldnt want to just tighten the screws, u would also want to reinforce with a spring or two.
but if u just need a small adjustment then tightening the springs is fine.

What guage did you go from/to? If you did take a big leap then you might need other adjustments too, like the truss rod and the action might need screwing around with a little.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.
