How many spring do you use with your trem. Just wondering.
3 springs, strat, 10-46, trem set flat on the body.
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).
three springs, in "W" pattern.
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.
5 springs or nothing at all, baby!
I use three - straight not angled.
I'm a 5 spring guy. Love to fight the wiggle stick.
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.
4 springs.. 10's or 11's center space open.. || || trem body about 1/8" off body...
two springs... angled...
3 springs...in triangle shape
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.
