My whammy bar is messed up. I must push REALLY hard on it for it to do anything. It gets REAL stiff. What is does this mean? Can I buy a new one? When I went to Guitar Center, the whammy bars all were fine.

is it a floating bridge?

well if its not a floating bridge then its probably jammed on the inside

if you use really heavy strings in standard tuning that can do it

then again it could just be a shit bridge

you could take it to a shop or just ask a guy there what he thinks

take off the strings, pull out the bridge and see if there's anything in mechanism. It there's nothing, try reducing the springs.

happened to me to but the guitar was already way ****ed

no. what type , model guitar is it?


u need to adjust the screws and maybe remove a spring from tha back cavity. that will loosen the bridge but will make it harder for u to keep it in tune.


example of 2 screws and 5 springs. the more springs and the thighter the srews, the tighter the bridge will be.

It will happen even on >2000$ guitars; the stratocaster tremolo design is flawed. The only way of getting around that problem is to get a bridge with a pop-in arm (which is what I have), or one with a design similar to Callaham bridges. Go check out their website.
