I changed the strings on my Ibanez about a week ago from 9-42 to 10-46. Ive been trying to get it in tune but the springs just wont take the tension of the strings, it can get to about one/half a step down before the bridge starts tilting upwards. Can anyone offer help on whether I should change the springs or any other solution to get it in tune?
Have you screwed the spings as tight as possible?
my rg120 only had 2 springs at first u might consider using 3 or maybe aligning them differently in the holes and tightening yeah
add a spring, fine tune the adjustment with the screws.
I have tightened the current springs as far as they will go. Is it possible to get heavier springs to match the strings?
Buy another spring, this should sort it out.
