Re: licensed floy rose springs

The guitars in question are two, black, flawless (in appearance anyway) B.C. Rich N.J. Series Warlocks (Widow headstocks) with licensed Floyd Rose tremelos. They are almost identical upon first glance. The first one I found at a pawn shop recently for $225 total. I couldn't pass it up. It has black hardware and a wood-grain (non-painted) neck and headstock (back of). Serial number is located on a metal plate on back of the guitar (where neck and body meet). It had .010 gauge strings on it and 4 springs (2 on each side with middle empty). About a month later I see this other one at a different pawnshop. I haggled with the guy and got it for $150 total. It has chrome hardware, a black (painted) neck and headstock (back of). It has a "fast-back heel" meaning it has no metal plate on back like the previous and this one is rounded where the other is square (back of guitar where top and neck meet). serial # located on back of neck. It had the smaller gauge strings which (after restringing with .010's) required the additional spring (3 to 4). It had one on each side and one in the middle. I arranged the springs the same as the other one. Someone had mentioned using 3 springs at an angle and I'd seen pictures of such but couldn't find much at all on the internet about this topic specifically. That's probably way more info than you care for but thanks alot for your help earlier and/or in the possible future.
