Re: Mojo Fly Tremolo/ Tuning Issue

It sounds like that spring is failing unfortunately. If you block the bridge with a piece of wood instead of the spring, does it still lose tuning? Something like this should help us rule out if the neck or the bridge itself is doing something unusual: https://flyclone.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=45...
