so the trem on my strat is down, but i want it back up. can someone show me a guide for doing this? its a MIM, so thats the kind of trem it has.

and i cant take it into the shop, cos the stupid guy had it for 6 weeks, and he didnt do it, even though its a 20 minute thing.

yes i realize i said my mom wont let me mess with the action, but screw it, i want my trem back.

flip the guitar on it's back take off the plastic cover and loosen the two screws in the trem cavity a few turns.


check the bridge and see if it's is where i want it.

if u want to adjust the action, u turn the pegs on the saddles wt a tiny allen wrench.

well how do i get it to stay in tune? cos it wont stay in tune... (when i use the trem)


If you have a cheap floyd rose like I do you cant really do anything to get it to stay in tuine. Alll you can do is buy a more expensive tremelo.

a level bridge will stay in tune for u better.

if u like it a little raised it's harder to keep it in tune.

you can also look at ur stringing technique, and if uve changed the stock strings.

His trem on his strat. Rarely, if ever, will you see a strat with a floyd rose...

I'm sorry, I've nothing else to offer to this thread.

As I said: rarely will you see one. If you don't mention what kind of trem your strat has, it's safe to assume it's not a floyd rose. That's the kind of thing you'd expect somebody to mention.

Unless, of course, yours does have a floyd rose. In which case I will go and cry.
