Vojtech mentioned that he had a problem setting up a vintage trem. Tremolo units can be a royal pain whether they are vintage or modern. Anything that has 3-5 springs as part of its components list is destined to be unstable and for a person just learning to do a setup, it can be a real headache
Below are several videos by an Italian guitar & amp maker that is probably the best info that I’ve found for Strat setups. Since he has at least 5 videos in this series, I only posted Part 1 of a series that he did on trem units and then there are several shorter videos on the various steps of a setup. Excellent info especially for setting intonation.
If you look at his You Tube page, he has posted a wealth of knowledge
