I just bought new strings for my fender strat. And I bought 11's instead of 9's. When I put them on, it raised the bridge up a little, so that I can push down on it and it raises the pitch.
Is this a bad thing? And is there anything I can do to fix it?

Take the backplate off and adjust the spring tension. You put heavier strings which will naturally put more tension on the bridge. Therefore, to counteract this, you need to have more tension pulling the opposite way on the bridge.

you'll probably need to adjust your intonation now.

Alright, if I can find I screw driver, I'll do the spring thing, then adjust the intonation.
Thanks guys

You put 11's on your strat?


Yeah, is that a bad thing? Ive heard people putting 12's and 13's on.

hmm, Ive been screwing them in for quite a while, and it's getting a little better, but at this rate, Im running out of scew to screw in, if that makes any sense.
