I recently bought a Squire Strat to play around with and to get familiar with Strats in general, and to do some upgrading. I actually plays pretty nice. Pickups however are pretty bad, but new ones are in the mail. My question is this. The string tension (suspension) on this guitar is by far the loosest of all 3 of my guitars. I can bend the string with incredible ease. That's great... However my low E string is too loose and needs to have a little more tension. The string is buzzing way entirely too much on on the entire neck.. So at this point I am happy with all the strings except for the low E string. I think increasing guage will increase tension, however I really do prefer the guage that I am using. EB Hybrid 9's. The bridge can float if I want it to, But I don't have it set to do so... Anything that I can try guys..
