Wrap it in bubble wrap and drop it in a bath full of water


On a serious note: you mean setting up the trem to float. For this, there should be many tutorials on the site
ohai little sig.

Im not really sure?
My best guess would be to take the screws out which are holding it in. Just keep the little things on each side at the front. Although the strings have to be the same tension as the springs so i dont really have any idea?
Good Luck

need to know the string size. and is it a strat? if it is or a strat type trem take of the trem cover should be 3 springs attached to a claw. if there are 5 springs remove 2. retune your guitar and the trem should be floating. use the screws on the claw to adjust to the proper height. retune and repeat till your trem is floating about a 1/8 of an inch. lube the nut string trees any place where the strings can bind. now play the guitar use the trem do some dive bombs and some pull ups and see if it stays in tune. if it doesn't. the object is to get all the strings to fall out of tune the the same way either sharp or flat it doesn't matter. then use the claw to fine tune the strings either loosen or tighten. your finding a balance between strings and springs. if the guitar is not properly strung it will not stay in tune.

mine floats with 5 springs and it's a fender style, really it depends on what string gauge you use and how stiff you want the action to be.

sure thicker string need more tension not always more springs........but thats why you guitar goes outta tune when you play it. incorrect balance.

First, you need a floating bridge.

Next, look at one of the tutorials on this site.



so...if i have a deatachable tremolo...it wont float?


And i opened it..and it has ONLY 3 springs all connected to the claw

he was sayin a floating trem like a FR or Wilkinson ect. you can setup a Fender style bridge to float too. you just have to ballence the tension so the bridge is 2-4 mm off the guitar body yet dosent go out off tune.

actually that guitar never goes out of tune, because I only use it for lighter clean stuff, my SG is the one that occasionally goes out of tune, and that's because I beat the shit out of it. But my strat copy is balanced just fine and has a very stiff action, which is what I prefer.

Well...there is some problem in the claw...after I fix the springs to the right tuning. It comes off.

one of the screw just pop out all of a sudden..causing the claw to pop out.

Other then that....Its ready.
so i just put it back to normal.
