I have a mex strat with the standard trem system which has all the usual problems.
Someone recently told me that fender produce some kind of gadget that attaches to the trem system and helps it to "return" or snap back.

Does anyone know what he is talking about ?

Any links anyone ?
I know that there is a stabilizer that they make for Floyd Rose Trems but i don't know of one for standard trems, maybe the same devise would work.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!
Fork out some money and put a good bridge on it. I threw a two point wilkinson trem on mine. I have to say of all the upgrades Iv'e done the bridge made the most difference.
