If you notice a major change, something is wrong. This should be repaired by a qualified tech. I keep the bass side at about 2 mm and the treble at about 1. To small tone cap results in the tone knob not taking away the treble as much as you want — even at minimum tone you find the tone too bright. The 94 Strat I just picked up had the claw screwed all the away in to allow for lowering the pitch only. JS John Spires Mar 8,

Fender Stratocaster explained and setup guide
If your strings are still too high, go back and follow the same steps. This would give you a little more lift when you pull up on the trem arm but it comes down to personal preference. In resting position the tremolo piece was floating not parallel to the guitar body, then when I used the whammy bar, the whole piece would slide up the screw. Set the D and G-strings equal in height. Is it really complicated to do?

Check the back-bow and relief of the neck. Conversely, if you are after a meaty, chunky sound, you're a candidate for heavier gauge strings. How far are you turning it?

Hi all, I hope you had a good week. Which type of metal that is used in the bridge saddles plays an important role. All these are physical, mechanic connections where the metal and wood is in motion. There is plenty of videos showing how it's done. The frets on the Strat are closer to the fret board, making for easier playing. This is amp tremolo, by definition. What can we possibly draw from this?
