Springs, what is there to say?

They work just like you'd expect them to. I don't have a gauge to measure them with, and I'm not entirely sure it would even matter. If you need springs, buy them. If you don't, buy them anyway you'll need them eventually.

Ibanez RG Series replacement

Replaced some damaged springs on a Ibanez RG that would not balance and stay in tune. These springs worked perfectly, problem solved.

New springs feel like a new guitar

My 15 year old springs lost the ability to pull my bridge down to the body, so I added a 4th spring and to compensate, but tension was too high. So bought 3 of these guys and now its perfect.

Tension springs they are indeed

These are as advertised, however the ones on my 2000 American Standard were black and Dan Erlewine points out that they are different. Anyway I had put 0.011s on my Strat and that pulled the tremolo up and out and I had to tighten the tremolo screws excessively and decided to add an extra spring or two. I later decided it was sucking the tone out of the guitar and I went back to 10 gauge strings and the 3 original black springs. Hence I am no longer using the extra springs. All in all, a cheap experiment that proved it is better to leave the original as it is. (Stevie Ray used heavy gauge strings but I am no Stevie Ray!!)

good springs

These worked real well at first, then the trem started tilting forward. A little additional tension and we're good to go again. Guess they had to break in.

Another small but needed item that's good to have extra of. They are exactly the same as the ones that came with me new Straocaster.

Five springs for a hard tail.

My Strat only came with four springs and I wanted one more for total lock down on the bridge and the added resonance. This spring is a perfect match.
