I just got my new strat, and when i tuned up to standard tuning from half step the bridge seem to like rise up at the back, i loked at the back and it only has 3 springs in it, should it have more, i an using 10-46 strings, i changed them yesterday, but there were 10 46 on its before i changed them, so is this normal or should i get it checked out.

You will probly need to tighten the 2 screws in the back or add a string, and then your intonation and truss rod might need some adjusting but im not positive on that.

three is normal.

try tightening the two big screws holding the plate holding the springs. that should solve it.

are they in a "V" shape? just wondering.

tighten the screws a little, and adding a spring isnt a big deal, especially if it's a MIM

the easiest way is to adjust the bridge. additionally u can adjust the neck too but, ur best off finding a happy medium.
