I just noticed this, but it's like the bridge is lifted at a bad angle, what's wrong with it?? Pressure??

Did you change strings recently? If you went to a heavier guage, I belive it will do that...u need more tension, which means adding springs to the cavity in the back. I know someone around here has a better explanation, but it's the best I can do ATM...


I'm tired...

Thanks, and I JUST went heavy gauge because the stock strings were too light and it wouldn't stay in tune..

Yes, then you need to add some tension...let me find a thread that was up earlier today. it had a good pic of the space to add springs and the guys problem...

Oh, I have an extra spring from my Squier. Can I just add it to the back of my new MIM one?

You want a beard, off?

I wouldn't see why not. If you get what I'm saying then please, LMK...I don't feel like searching for that thread. But basically all you need to do is add tension until the bridge is level. How you go about getting the correct tension, I do not know.
Hope I helped a lil.

Thanks, but I'm driving myself insane now because my relatively new b string broke and I don't have an extra. It is indeed making me pissed at the moment.. I'm gonna have to borrow one..

Haha, at first, not really, after just getting my new Strat, but I completely forgot to get some extra strings but I thought I'd just keep the stock ones or switch the heavier strings on it from my Ibanez. Bad as f*ck choice. And just tonight after switching all the damn strings it doesn't stay in tune. A nightmare. Then my b string breaks. Gonna have to borrow one I guess.

lol, I feel ya...I always buy multiple packs of strings for situations like that, and as u kno, it will og out of tune for a bit after new strings...the fact that the bridge is out of whack doesn't help. and on that subject, I'd like to just say, that Grover mini tuners are the absolute best u could get, and IMO are completely worth it. Just thought I'd throw that out there. lol

Haha, thanks. I dunno I might go back to lighter strings. Not sure.. I somewhat wish my guitar wasn't as new, so it would have some endurance..

lol, you should probably decide the string guage you will stick with and have it setup for that...if the guitar is stock with light strings, and you want some heavy guage strings, you're gonna need to add some springs, and I think you have to do some adjustments to the action and intonation, but I'm not 100% on that.

Oh well, f*ck the springs. I was just experimenting with higher gauge string to help get that SRV tone. Light strings are fine.

Edit: Also I'm just making sure I didn't screw up my bridge haha.

nah, you'll be fine. I would stick with lighter strings, but that's just me...10's 4 me.

Well after changing strings, you gotta stablize the bridge.
I have floyd rose on my Strat,
3 springs, and 10's


Sorry if that doesn't help or anything.
I'm kinda drunk. lmao.


#17
New strings don't stay in tune, you need to stretch them after restringing.

I just shoved a block of wood in the back to stop the bridge from moving and fix it in place last time I changed the strings.
#19
10s? Those were what I used that forced the bridge upward >__>

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
