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?

No matter what I do I can NOT get this freaking thing in tune and it's flat

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.

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.

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 (10 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

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
