Re: Locking System for Floating Tremolo

You can get a tremsetter, but with the fine tuners you should be able to have all strings in tune... I have 2 gutairs w/floyd roses, and have a differnt "tuning method" for each... so can't really offer any advice there... if you can't get it in tune check/adjust the hardware, you can find alot of advice on the web on floyd's.... Good luck.

: I have a floating tremolo (floyd rose or something, i don't know).
: The bridge is suspended around a fulcrum. It uses the tension of the strings to hold it up and a really strong spring to hold it down.
: The problem arises because of the fact that the strings distribute the load of the spring. What that means, is that if I tune one string up, all the other strings get loosr and therefore detune. If I tune one string down, this increases the tension of the other strings, and they all go up in pitch.

: When I play with my friends, I tune my guitar to theirs by first tuning my entire guitar. If I am flat, I detune one string (a sacrificed string) and this raises the pitch of the other strings. If I am sharp, I tune one string very high and this drop the pitch of the other strings.

: I am tired of sacrificing one string everytime i play with someone else or everytime I play to a record or recording. Is there some device I can make or buy that would lock my tremolo. Help.
