    3, sometimes with the outer springs angled, 10-46 strings, regardless of scale (I have 24.75, 25, and 25.5 guitars with this arrangement).

    5 springs. Love my bridge flat and don't like hearing an open string go out of tune when I bend. Plus I use 11's on about everything I play.

    Maybe that's why Guitar Hero sucks....have you felt that whammy bar? No tension whatsoever!

    I've got four springs on right now, but I'm considering getting a fith, just to try what it feels like.

    3 springs, straight not angled, 10-52's and set up to float enough so that I can pull my open G String up a perfect setp and a half.

    5 springs, seems to hold tune better, I do set my tremolo to go up and down in pitch, found less springs the tuning did not hold as well.

    5 springs but it's completely blocked. I'd break the trem bar before i moved that bridge.

    Three, whether it be the Ibanez Lo-Pro Edge 7 on my RG7620, the Kahler Spyder on my Strat, or the Callaham on my Warmoth Gilmourcaster.
