Title: Floyd Rose In&Outs
Post by: Ex_ on May 27, 2007, 08:43:49 am
So, man, it had been a long time. My aXe has a floyd rose, I havent picked up a guitar in 3 years... So, I bought a Bich Zombie... it had 10 gauge strings, I went and bought 8 gauge went to change strings, and First I made the most obvious mistake with Floyd Rose... I took all the strings off of it, and the bridge collapsed. FUCK! But, then so I put the 8s on it and wasnt watching and pop broke a string because I wasnt paying attention to the tension... Now I forget how to set it up. I used to be a pro at it,.... I took off the back and used a screw driver and released tention by loosing the springs a bit, then had to level the bridge... but, I need another string until then... its just setting there.

The guitar is Brand New I just bought it and barley played it... I got the bridge back up... I'm gonna get a new set of strings to replace the broken one, then set the tention just right, it should work out.

I got bridge problems right now too. Who would've thought a goddamn Tonepros bridge could give me so much grief? I'm just going to take it to the music store and get the town uber-guitarist to make it perfect.

i actually have a question about this subject as well. Mine is; Are the licenced floyd roses just as big of a bitch to tune as the regular floyd roses are?

Just take it to Guitar Center.
I love the place, but for me and my L Prestige, it's like 45 miles.
I love going in and playing guitars I'm interested in.
Listening for what they can do, and how they feel in my hands. [Sht I need a prophylactic].
But my Ibanez always comes out on top, like God was waiting.

Do not tighten to much on the neck bridge, you will strip that sucker in an instant. Finger tight and leave it alone.
Trust me, been their done that, now my gun metal finish has a little shiny spot on the E, and A plate from sanding.

I don't mean grip it and turn the allen key, I'm put it between your thumb and forefinger only.
Thats what the rubber pad is for. Not your whole hand.
   I hate having to figure this sht out. Mine came with nothing. No owners manual or how to.
That sucks. A serial number, tagged. Thats it.
