Re: Brand new Prestige tremolo problems, Please Help!!!!
Plenty of folk use 10-46 standard so they shouldn't be the problem. You said the guitar came stock with 9-42, yes? You also mentioned you spent time setting the guitar up. So usually when you switch to a higher gauge string you would/may need to adjust the trem springs claw, bridge height and truss rod. Once this is all done and the strings have settled, i.e. stretched, you might find the trem feeling 'stiffer' but it should react the same as having a set of 9's on. Did you adjust any, some or all of the above? Have you let the strings stretch properly? Also, if this sounds at all patronising I don't mean it to be, I'm just trying to see what you've tried and narrowing down the possibilities. Cheers
