    Happy it worked man!

    Sorry I didn't think of it earlier on. You know what they say about the simplest solutions........

    It could be that the treble side stud has started to "lift" out of it's hole. If it has, it's as easy as hitting it with a rubber mallet to get it back in place.

    Your guitar may need a shim in the neck, if the trem is hitting the bushing.

    I'd really need some pictures to diagnose it though.

    I mean, quantitatively, how low is it in the route? Is the baseplate level with the top of the guitar? That kind of measurement.

    What's the lowest your trem can go before the knife edge slips?

    Sorry for all these questions, it's just REALLY hard to troubleshoot stuff like this blind.

    What's the action look like at the 5th, 12th, and 24th frets?

    The knife edge should be sitting in the divot of the stud (the valley the knife edge sits in).

    As for the edges, as you can see here, the treble side should be curved, while the bass side should be straight.

    Do you have a picture of the trem slipping out of the divot?

    Typically, it's caused by the trem having a severe negative set-up angle.

    What's happening exactly?
    What's slipping?
    Are you referring to the trem post?

    There is no real "spring formula", and since the claw is quite adjustable, you really should be fine with either two or three springs in nearly any pattern, those .009 are fairly light so compensating for their tension isn't difficult.

    It's really a matter of feel to be quite honest. Start out trying the two spring "\/" shape, then go to the three spring shapes "lll" and "\l/". You'll notice each spring pattern will require adjusting of the spring claw screws (of course). It'll also effect the movement and "bounce" of the trem.

    Play around and experiment, changing springs is easy as pie.

    Yeah, I read the Roter thread. Honestly, I'm not incredibly surprised given the hiccups that these guitars have faced.
