Question about Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster Electric Guitar Microphone
I'm guessing that in addition to your explanation, the guitar does not have currently have strings on it and you want to replace them. If so, this will fix your problem and is generally the best way to restring a floating bridge strat:
1) Remove the metal plate from the back of the strat. Inside you'll see the springs and the back of the bridge. Get yourself a thick piece of paper (or an ace of spades card like I do ;) and hold the guitar on your lap like you're going to play.
2) Gently push the back of the bridge up a bit and slide the paper/card in between the body and the back of the bridge on the front of the guitar. This will give you the room to get the strings through and slide the tremelo bar in correctly.
3) Restring the guitar starting with the low E, bringing it into pitch and then repeating in order with the other 5 strings. The card will fall out as the strings begin to put tension on the bridge. Replace the back plate and rock out vigorously.
