    The previous owner of my UV7BK had 10's, and the action was pretty high, he used 4 springs. Now I'm making the setup with 9's, and I can't low the action as much as I want. I guess the bridge is too raised, but I'm not sure. I tried all the spring configs, with 3 and 4 springs, and the best was...

    I ordered two black Schaller Trem's when Floyd's were on back order a few months ago. I found some Floyd's from Carvin so I never used these. One is still in the sealed bag it came in new, and the other is also new and never been used. They are black. Asking $150 each for them. Comes with trem...

    I've been using EB 10's since I got my RG550 and recently I've been finding them really tense and bending is not the easiest thing in the world (I've tried stretching them A LOT). I was just wondering how much of a difference there is with 9's rather than 10's. Would 9's feel looser and help...
