right now my guitar is in standard tuning with 10-54 strings. and 5 springs in the back. if i want to tune down to drop c should i remove some springs? if so, how many?
It doesn't make that much difference when you're tuning down. The tremolo can only go so far back before it just stops, but if you want to use the tremolo then you could probably afford to take out 2. It varies with the guitar really.
