Guitar setup problems

Hey guys, I have an Ibanez SAS32EX which I play daily. I seem to have stumbled upon an issue when tuning down to C# standard to play some Between the Buried and Me. The issue is simple, my guitar feels very tight. In C# standard, it feels like my friends RG that's in E. That can't be right, it feels rather stiff to play. I have 11's on it right now and three springs in the tremolo, I think the springs are causing this problem. How do I go about fixing this?

Re: Guitar setup problems

seems strange I must agree. So thats down a half step, then low E to C# or something like that correct? kinda like drop D sound.

Re: Guitar setup problems

C# is 3 semitones, or half steps down from E standard. It's alot lower than drop D, but yeah, it's for a baritone sound.
