Duane Eddy Bigsby Arms, no spring?

1

Are the Duane Eddy Bigsby Arms supposed to have to spring?

I‘m also a big fan of the Duane handles (and the vintage narrow handle above on smaller guitars like Tellys and Jets).

If I‘m right they come without the spring- and I personally prefer the handles springless.

I assume you mean the little spring under the nut that holds the arm on. These should always be destroyed or compressed until they become a thick washer, regardless of which arm you have. You will still need the big spring though.
