well i know that you have to have a minimum thickness like 9s or something like that to make sure the bridge can lock them down but assuming you tightened it on the bridge with the right amount of thickness i fail to see what the problem could be.

I DONT HAVE A CLUE WHAT GUAGE ARE ON IT BUT I BOUGHT 9'S TODAY AND I SAW SOMEWHERE THAT IT WILL MESS UP THE TREM IF I PUT THE WRONG GUAGE ON. I DONT WANT TO MESS UP MY GUITAR.

If You Put A Gauge Which Is Thicker Than The Previous One The Bridge Will Get Tilted Out From The Body. If You Put A Gauge Which Is Thinner Than The Previous One The Bridge Will Get Tilted Inwards Due To The Tension Not Being Equal.

Oh And Btw, FIX YOUR CAPS LOCK.

Using heavier gauge strings will have more tension than lighter gauge, this heavier tension will cause the bridge to raise and mess up the action, inotation ect...This could be fixed by adjusting the tremolo springs on the back by tightening them pulling the bridge back down, Then you re-tune and adjust until it is perfectly inline with the guitar body.

Need more info?...Just ask

Yeah it's pretty easy, do some research on the internet before you get your tools to your axe?
Or just get it done my your local guitar store and see if you can watch them or something?

Double locking systems work on basis of locking the strings at the nut and at the bridge.

Read this post here on how to restring your guitar.

The manor of which the TS talks is extremely funny. Almost like a distressed 4 year old.

there is a sticky with tutorial and Q and A at the top of the page.

go to your manufacturers web site, FAQs section to find if they use stock 9's or 10's.

swap one string at a time.
