Help: How to set up the John Petrucci Music Man JP6 Bridge Properly?
New Music Man John Petrucci JP6 owner here. I’m new to tremolo systems, but tried to set up the guitar with a new set of 9-46 strings, using the already installed 3 springs in the tremolo system. The tuning stability was fantastic and the tremolo bridge was sitting flat on with respect to the guitar’s surface.
So today, after 6 days of having this guitar, during a humble bend, I broke my high E string, which I think was a result of high string tension. Since this guitar comes with a 10-46 set from the factory, what do you recommend to do to reduce the chances of breaking expensive strings (NYXL in this case). Should I remove one of the tremolo springs? Or man up (I’m a girl with girly fingers :p) and try using a 10-46 set?
Thank you in advance for your advice.
