2013 Universe Premium - String Gauge

So i just picked up a brand new 2013 Universe Premium, Plays and sounds phenomenal of course but I have a small issue...

The 3 tremolo springs are fully tightened in the back and the guitar only has 9 gauge strings on it. I want to move to 10s. Not sure how to go about fixing this. If i am stuck with these damn spaghetti noodles I may not keep it. Which would really suck cause I love the way it sounds, I just want MY gauge strings on it.

Buy new springs with higher tension perhaps?

The first one I setup I sent a picture to the specialist to tell them the rout was screwed and nobody could use larger than 9's on these.

Crickets.

HT springs are your best option.

Re: 2013 Universe Premium - String Gauge

So you wouldnt reccomend taking the screws out and just using the other 2 holes with more springs?

If you have a setup with good pullup range, and use it, you will pop springs out.

Re: 2013 Universe Premium - String Gauge

Well for the moment, since Im not Vai and dont use the bar for alot of "up" stuff. It will suffice till i can get some HT Springs.

Thanks Rich and Leviathus!
