Post PGM300 and Zakk Wylde Signature Series strings...
I just bought some Zakk Wylde Signature Series strings (0.010 - 0.060) :shock: and of course I've discovered my 3 installed springs isn't enough to tame the tension of these massive strings, I imagine 5 springs will do it, but I'm wondering what this is going to do to my neck. Come on tech heads, help me out before I possibly totally destroy my baby.

Nothing, I dont think.. or hardly anything.

All the tention should be in the springs on your trem..

Dude, those strings are NOT meant to be played on a tremolo guitar. Simple equasion.

I've seen 10-58's on a trem guitar, but the Zakk strings are HUGE, dude.

Dude, there's been signature strings for 15 years.

The Zakk ones make sense, because they're .10 through .60 and .11 through .70 for his tuned-down style.

Wow. Guess I never noticed. I just buy 'em in bulk when they go on sale, like, once a year or so. If I want a custom set, I just buy them individually.

DON'T TRY IT!!!!
I tried it on my rg 270 dx with two extra springs but the strings broke the screws of the tremolo when I tuned them to D!! It cost me 80 euro letting it fix again.
