With an OFR bridge, would springs have to be adjusted upgrading string gauge from 9 to 10?

^^yea, that's the only thing you really need to adjust. you might want to readjust intonation but it's not much of a difference.
10's should give you better tuning stability...

Slightly - 10's would have a bit more pull on the tremolo so you'd have to tighten the springs slightly.


n00b question, but how do I do that, and is it hard to do?

well, open the trem cavity from the back of the guitar, and tighten the screws that hold the springs until the bridge is parallel with the body of guitar...
jenny, some pics maybe?

I don't actually have the guitar I'm going to be doing this on yet, I'm planning months ahead in advance here, but doesn't seem too bad No hurry on anything.

two screws on the left side adjust the bridge height, small amounts.
and adding or taking off springs moves the whole bridge up and down.

Regardless how you're doing it - one string at a time or all at once - the guitar will need a FULL SETUP including truss rod adjustment when moving to a different gauge of strings. There's much more to changing gauges on a Floyd (or any bridge, for that matter) than just installing new strings and adjusting spring tension.

Going from 9's to 10's he prob isn't going to need a truss rod adjustment. He may but probably not. He may need to raise the action at the bridge slightly though.

He may be able to get away without the truss rod right away. But within a few days, the extra tension will bow the neck just a touch.

the thing is, u never really know because perhaps his neck was very straight before, and the new gauge will be just what he needs to make it a nice angle for him.

i just always go into it with the attitude, that it's best to prepare in case you need an adjustment.

Funny, I changed from .09s to .10s and didn't require a setup adjustment. Maybe it's just my bridge or something? I dunno, anyway it worked fine.
