As you can see, these are the springs of a common guitar.
This is a traditional Fender tremolo bridge with the usual springs
Two of them are angled

When springs are too elongated they start to sound like strings.
When the guitar is plucked, vibration is transferred through the bridge block...
... into the springs, making them ring simpathetically.
This weak ringing noise can make the guitar sound out of tune when amplified
even with properly tuned strings.
To avoid this ringing, springs need to be muted.
This spring on the top has the mute installed.
And you can clearly hear the difference it makes
