1) Remove the 10's and fit 9's instead
2) Add another spring to the back of the trem block
And those are the options. Sorry, I just assumed that you'd fitted the same gauge that you took off...
And on stretching the strings in, I do the same as you Krunek - bend the strings up from every fret between 3 & 15ish and go nuts with the bar... retune and repeat...
Ok, since i never messed with the springs, i am restringing it...Arrrrgggh!!!
I shall keep you guys posted on the matter. Thank you all. Say, Ren, you are an Ibanez guy, right? How do i make the bar a bitt stiffer, so it stays in the position I leave it in and not just hang on the lowest point?? The luthier guy told me to take the wrench, the same type i got for bridge and screw a little in the hole beneath the bar. Tried it, doesn"t work out. And It is to small of a hole to figure out what kind of a tool I need. Any advice on that matter? Thanks!!
