Tremolo Spring Adjustment – (California Guitar models only)

Our California models have 3 springs under the back plate that may need adjustment as you change your string gauge. If you decide to use a heavier gauge string you will see the Bridge pull up from the body a little as you tune the guitar. This will effect action and intonation. This is a simple fix.

Tremolo Spring Adjustment

  • Loosen strings a little
  • Locate the back plate of the California guitar
  • Remove screws to take plate completely off
  • Locate Spring Claw


  • Use Phillips head #2 screwdriver to tighten screws equally unit Bridge is level with the guitar Body
  • Tune guitar
    – If Bridge is still too high repeat previous step
  • Replace back plate
