Hello,

I'm just curious is to how the springs come directly from the factory?

Say a 3 spring trem (510 or Floyd), does Suhr prefer them in any particular order? all straight? In a V? And if so, what are the advantages to installing them in any order?....or is this at the customer's request when having one built?

Sorry if it's a stupid question Confused

I've got a Modern from 2010 which is parallel...mainly to accommodate the T-No.

I've got a recent Classic Pro which is V.

V so if you pull way back they don't all bottom out
It helps to distribute and feels smoother to me

Thanks John. I have typically used the V formation and it works well for me on most guitars, but there is a lot of conflicting information on this point "floating around" online.
