Or use the trem bar. You know what I mean. Just curious if I'm the only one that locks the bridge down (with 4 springs) and that's that, no trem bar, no whammying. Never appealed to me or my style I should say. So, why not just buy a hard tail? Well, (now I'm gonna ramble) I did try a hard tail some years ago and fiddle fudged with it for months. For some odd reason I just couldn't get 'that' vibe and tone my precious ears would like compared to my other strats. Long story short I discovered that having the springs (4 of them), the trem block and the routed out wood makes a tonal difference. To me it does, not claiming this as science. Anyhoo I hope this made sense, if not feel free to taunt me with shrubbery. Some of you will get this.
