so i brought my guitar to school and this kids snapped my high E string so i went out today n bought new strings for it, the super slinkys and when i put them on my schecter the floating tremelo seems to be out of whack O_o the front part of it is the normal height above the body of the guitar and the rear part of it is significantly lower...now my strings buzz w/o mercy. I'm thinking its because they put heavier gauge strings on it stock when i bought it from guitar center...i dont know what gauge though. What do i do!?!! halp plz!!1!11!!!

Did you take all of the strings out at once?

You should turn the screws from the back of the guitar to balance it. Because if you take all strings out at once on an FR, it gets whacked. But if you're not too familiar with FR's right now, you should get it setup.

Well, don't do that with FR's.

Anyway, you should loosen or tighten the screws from the back of the guitar's body to fix the bridge. Don't turn it too much though.

how much is too much O_O

and do i want both the left and right sides of the floating bridge to be the same height?

Yeah, you want it parallel to the body of the guitar, and read the link that was posted by another user.
