Re: How do I adjust intonation on Floyd Rose?

Floyd Rose bridges are not that hard to adjust if you follow this procedure. Tune the guitar and balance the bridge so that it is level when tuned. This is done with the springs in the back. Check intonation. If a note is sharp, loosen that string quite a bit, then using a 2mm allen wrench and a flat blade screwdriver, loosen the screw holding down the saddle enough that you can push it back about 1/16" with the screwdriver, then retighten the saddle while holding it in position with the screwdriver. If you run out of range on a hold down screw, you will have to loosen the string to slack to move it back one position.

PS this technique does require some coordination, if you don't have good hand tool skills, it's a good way to scratch your guitar, procede with caution, ;)
