Purchased these for an MIM Fat Strat im revamping.
Since i don't use the trem i decided to basically make it
into a hardtail by simply removing the 3 original springs
and installing the 5 springs. Noticed an immediate difference
in playability and the guitar stays in tune much longer. Perfect fit.
I will be getting another set for my American Series HSS.

ok.

Nothing wrong with the product, but I was hoping these springs would put my Strat bridge back where it belongs. It didn't do the trick. Now I'm shopping for heavier springs.

          I replaced the original 3 springs in my son's Mexican Strat. He uses heavier strings, and this solved several action and intonation issues.

            Comments about Fender Vintage Tremolo Tension Springs Set of 5:

            I wanted to go from 9's to 10's on my Strat to see what it would sound like. But the bridge lifted under the increased pressure from the fatter strings and that raised the string height in the area of the 12th fret and above. The answer was to stiffen up the bridge by adding 5 springs rather than the stock 3 springs. Problem solved...

            Comments about Fender Vintage Tremolo Tension Springs Set of 5:

            What can one say about tremolo tension springs? They work! I rarely use the tremolo on my strat so I decided to just throw the maximum 5 springs in to anchor it down.

            If your old springs are getting spongy and weak, you can fix your problem for $7. Can't beat that! haha

              Springs ....what's to review, but they fit and attached to claw and bridge well. I believe in 5 springs not 3, not much of a trem user I decked it.

                          Too short or tension too high for use on American Standard Stratocaster.

                                    I had to replace my springs due to a tinkering son, who replaced the springs with a wood block. Now I would say the guitar works as it should. You may only need 3 springs, but see what works for you.

                                              I really liked the way these turned out on my Stratocaster, I used all five springs with 9's and it is really stiff in a good way, I think it's a prefernce thing some guitarist my not like it some may you just have to try for yourself!!
