My new guitar (Rg2550e) is coming tomorrow or Thursday, and Im making my Squier be my finger strenthening-alternate tuning- mod practice guitar. Im slowy making my way to 13's. I just put on 11's and the bridge went insane. I lowered the action, but the bridge is still lifted up like crazy. Any way to fix this?

add more springs in the back.

www.guitarfetish.com... tremelo springs... there should be 3 of them in your back cavity. You can see how they're attatched... make it 5...

a squier is a bad practice for changing gauges. because the 2550 has a floating bridge.
and yes, add more springs..

I know it has a floating bridge, but since the Squier doesn't, I didn think there would be so much hassle just to change to a heavier gauge.

yes but 2550 is different.. its like practicing football for a basketball game.. when your guitar arrives, have it fixed with a tech..

sorry i didnt get this. you could just say to practice my finger to a thicker gauge. anyways just bring the guitar to a tech rather than fixing it yourself. i learned my lesson with a different situation.. thought i could fix it myself. instead it end up as bad action and bad intonation.

dude, you are the only one who could answer that question, well IMO, you already failed of fixing your guitar.

Springs in the back and then a full setup.

that means truss rod adjustment, string height adjustment and intonation adjustment.

i'm no expert with trems, but maybe also try adjusting the spring tension.

I once used an SG on stage. I killed three people in the front row and I was only tuning up. It's THAT powerful.
