I'm planning on putting heavy gauge strings on my guitar but anyone know how many extra springs i have to buy? or how should I just get the guitar center people to do it?
and how much would that take and cost
Hmmm.... I have 4 springs on mine, but I use 10-52. What tuning and guage r u goin to use..?
using 11s i put 5 springs in mine before I blocked it, you can probably get away with 4 if you want less tension on the bar when you use it.

I use three springs, and slant them. After you put the strings on, the bridge should be flat. If it isn't just tighten the screws. Good luck
I have 10-52's on mine and adjusted the screws in the back instead of buying a new spring and it worked just fine.
