wow, dunno why but since i did the body tuning thing my divebombs sound
soooo much clearer, thanks a bunch for the video it really helped!

Author AmazingChris!! (1 month)
serious question: what happens if you drop tune like a regular guitar. and
is there a way to do something to the guitar that will let you tune like a
regular guitar?

Author WhiteMagic (3 months)
Will a chromatic headstock tuner work for this?

MAN THANKS YOU MADE MY DAY WITH THIS.. now i think i'll play all day long
:))

Author Sean Lim (28 days)
I've put the stack on cards but the bridge still won't keep straight. Does
turning the strings on the back help to "retune" the strings back to the
original tuning and straighten the bridge out?

Author gunblazingmutant (1 month)
No matter what I do I can NOT get this freaking thing in tune and it's flat
out pissing me off. >.> I'll tune in the exact order that he says, and it
detunes the previous strings by two or three whole notes. I'm trying to
tune to drop C. I'll put my low E in C and the go to high E and b and tune
them to A and D and so on and so forth and my low E is all the way down to
A# or B. >.> I don't want to sell this guitar but it's pissing me off to
where I want to.

I have a JS1200 and a JS1000 - Both are pains in the ass to drop tune -
it's not worth the trouble. I have a Les Paul Custom and it take about10
seconds.

Author Tyreek Murillo (18 days)
Why do all that when u can get an evh d tuna

Author Yard Sale Dale (5 months)
Floyd Rose system is great, if you're going to buy one type of strings and
use 1 tuning, If not, invest in getting threaded coils installed and allen
head screws for the bridge spring adjustment.

Author AgentFour (4 months)
A D-tuna works too.

If I have 11-54 gauge strings is it okay for me to tune up to standard or
do I have to get different strings before I can tune up?

Author Mir Ubaid (1 year)
Floyd Rose means "Screws tight, Screws lose, Screws, Screws, Screws".
Basically you just screw your life with a Floyd Rose when it comes to
dropped and raised tunings :(

Author MegaBarger (11 months)
Is it ok if you dont tune from the back of the guitar? seems like more work
that goes into doing this, I just tune to whatever tuning i want and then
mess with the claw screws and continue to go back and forth until the
bridge is level, when its level I tune it once more and then lock down the
nut then use my fine tuners to tune it into perfect pitch. Is this an
alternate way of doing this or just the wrong way?

Author AxeRaptor (11 months)
Dammit 9 mins to retune a floyd..... guess i'll stick with fixed bridges.
Less hassle, more playing!

Author Isiah Drew (1 year)
Because it's a floating bridge. Tuning it like a regular guitar would case
the bridge to not work properly because every time you tune one string the
tension from that one stirng changes causing the whole bridge to move.
Therefore, it's easier to tune the way he showed it.

Author kjrody21 (9 months)
its ok i fixed the problem. It turns out you can keep in the middle spring
with the right string gauge. I dont blame you for thinking that you cant do
melodies in drop tuning because obviously you dont listen to any Melodic
Death Metal or Melodic Metalcore

Author jorge calzada (1 year)
He call the tremolo bar "the floyd" wtfk

Author dlouievel (1 year)
Hey just did this and its flush, I have no problems doing dives, but when I
pull on the whammy bar it seems a little tight, and I don't want to pull
too hard cause Idwanna break the string (dont want to chance it) any help
on looseing it? or is it just new strings? (B.C. Rich Warbeast T)

Author miatuneaphish (9 months)
Or get a detuner for it...

Author Fumfig (8 months)
As do Insomnium and several other similar Artists, I never stated it is a
detriment.

Author ninjanaut1000 (1 year)
same.

Author Crunchifyable2 (8 months)
You can, but its going to require a truss rod adjustment and the usual
adjustments if u have a floyd. That gauge is doable for standard (esp if
you have a strong or thick neck that can handle it without needing much
truss adjustment) but would be more comfortable in 1/2 step down.

Author weston guidero (1 year)
would this be the same if i wanted to tune down to C standard? 2 whole
steps down. and use a thicker string gauge? or would i have to do something
more to use thicker strings?

Author kjrody21 (7 months)
i put 74 guage strings and put it in drop E because why the fuck not :D
