well im returning to standard tuning from my successful period of time in drop d but my bridge on my js1000 wont got to parallel again. the tension is way too low in the back but ive screwed the claw screws in a hell of a lot and the bridge is still incredibly high. what the foo should i do?
#3
hmm thats odd is doesnt take much at all to change out of drop d about half a rotation for me seriously small. what strings you using - what gauge?
#4
Add more springs?

try changing your strings. sometimes the tension gets really wonky in the strings themselves. same thing happened to a friend of mine.

hmm well yeh i cant see why that would be then that should be easy, just try a bit more slowly sometimes it can just sorta jump back into place otherwise take it to get checked out.

I think for having a guitar nice as a JS1000 you should know how to fix it...


anyway

Take off the locking nut clamps and down tune your guitar enough so the bridge is closer to parallel

then loosen the screws holding the springs in the body just enough, that when you tune you guitar now the bridge is parallel

its all trial and error really, finding the right amount of screwing and down tuning

this is word for word of what ive been doing. ive done this before and its never happened and its always been a smooth parallel bridge.

yeh try some vaseline serious miracle worker=P

mine was a bit sticky when i got it then used some vaseline and now is just spiffing it may be that you bridge is a bit sticky btw the physics are a bit weird on a floyd so you may need to over compensate on balancing then work backward cos there is a delicate balance point tis annoy but just takes a bit of practice to know where it is

im getting there so we can calm down (when i say we i mean me) i put some lube on the springs and its getting to parallel nicely so thanks for the Vaseline tip amigo
