Can I ask, what would be the difference between having 3 springs on a Strat to having 5 springs? Does it affect the performence, sound, or reliability of the tremelo? Just curious, thanks
I'll take a guess and say the more springs you have the better it stays in tune but it's more difficult to do something like a divebomb.
the more springs u have the harder it is to use the trem.
its a little harder to push the bar but the tradeoff is your strings wont go as flat when you bend them, your guitar will stay in tune after tremalo useage and your trems zero point (where your string tension = spring tension) which should be pretty tight against your guitar body.
