hi folks, here's the deal. Just joined a surf guitar band, i have recently restrung a strat style guitar but the tremelo bridge is sitting flush against the body so i can only bend down (!) but not up ! Now theres probably a simple remedy, but after always owning telecasters i have no experience of tremelo actions etc., do i need heavier gauge strings to pull it over more, or is there a way to adjust the springs in the unit. Also as a recommendation given the style of music we are gonna do, i am rhythmn guy, so what gauge string would be appropriate, the ones i just put on have a 9 bottom E, i think heavier would be good. thanks guys Strat o Novice !
