Floater Help

When I first changed strings on my Fender, I had never work with a floyd rose system before, when restringing, I looked down and to my dismay the bridge was sticking up at about a 35 degree angle because I kept trying to tune it. The whole thing was by accident because I wasn't paying attention. Now whenever I use the w-bar, it never returns to the pitch it was in. I have three springs in the back so I'm sure I have enough tension. Do you think that I bent it? That's what I'm guessing and I'm thinking about buying a new floyd rose system, but I'd thought I'd ask just in case someone has a trick.

Could be you put heavier strings on there than were on there in the first place, that would pull the bridge up. So what Feylya says, tighten the springs down.

I believe Fender has a very thorough setup guide on their web site, you should run through that instead of just flying blind.

As for your floater problem: Look up. See that handle there? Pull it down.
