WHY YOU NO USE NO VOWELS?

Floyd Rose Question

Hello. I was planning on buying a Jackson guitar but people have told me the floyd rose bridge is useless if you're a guitarist who uses mulitple tunings. Can anyone explain to me how a floyd rose bridge works, and why they are such a pain?.

Re: Floyd Rose Question

whoever told you that is fucked up in the head, i never use multiple tunings on my original floyd rose, it stays in tune when i use the whammy bar and even better when i dont, they are great, dont drop out of tune too often, mine is no hassle at all and neither are the other 3 i have, so try it once, youll see its simple and easy.

Re: Floyd Rose Question

He's saying they are useless if you are a guitarist who uses mutiple tunings, how quickly can you tune them to different tunings??
Lee

Re: Floyd Rose Question

really the only tuning i use is standard, half and drop D so what i do is tune em up to standard, lock the locking nut, and do my best to tune them down before the next song, but i misenterpretted what eh was sayin i thought he ment its hard to tune em into other tunings
sorry Trevor

oh ok...sorry about the miscomunication.

So they ARE a pain for changing tuning?

Re: Floyd Rose Question

Ill admit they are a pain because you have to keep tuning them up or down because the system moves when you drop, but ive gotten used to it so it takes me botu 1 1/2 minutes to tune it to drop D quickly, but even then its not completely accurate, ill admit, they are a pain in the ass unless you got other guitars for the dif. tunings, but id go for it because its a good system, but when you change tuning itll take you a while to figure out how high to set the knobs and stuff to be able to change the tuning on stage, go for it.
Sorry bout the misinterpretation, Trevor

Re: Floyd Rose Question

Yes, the floyd rose is a pain to tune, even to get a fine tune. Because when you use heads it pulls the casing foward, losing the strings!

Re: Floyd Rose Question

I bought a Charvel with a Floyd Rose Tremolo about a month ago, and there are no hassles. The only thing i can't figure out is hot to get the whammy bar in. But anyway when i first bought this guitar it rattled. So i simply raised the two screws that held up the bridge which brought the strings higher from the bridge. The Floyd Rose is spring tensed so if you have problems with it all you have to do is unscrew the back panel and take of the springs which will take off the bridge and tremolo. If you have anymore questions just post them.

-Tyler

Re: Floyd Rose Question

They said theres a lot of screwing around when you want to change tuning..like from standard to C for example. They said you have to pretty much take it apart to get it right, as apposed to a tune-o-matic where you can change tunings pretty quickly.

Re: Floyd Rose Question

ok 1st of all ive had my jackson a few months an the floyd rose is incredible it rarly goes out of tune. its basically a locking floating bridge(if that makes any sense) the is also a locking nut on jacksons so the strings done break when you use the whammy bar. the only prob with the floyd rose is the nut and the fact that you have to get the allen key out to undo it to change tunings(this is really only i miner problem n u wont care as your guitar will always be in tune)
last of all jackson make the best guitars(yes they are far better than ibanez) i will recomend them to anyone

Re: Floyd Rose Question

yea my bro has a jackson with a floyd rose bridge and he loves it but the problem is that he has to use an allan key to loosen parts on it to be able to tune it. the guitar almost never goes out of tune but if ur a person that tunes it often then dont buy it thats all i have to say
