Did this video help you?

baringer4: thanks mr cobain!

Jon Diagram: crap I was stuck on this guitar for ages thanks bro

Henrique: Kurt Cobain meets John Lennon?

Andreas Karlsson: is it so simple :D!!

mrmoney185: Thanks I use a robotic tuner so I don't need the fine tuners

pit_thrasher: whered you get that Charvel?

Metayerthraxadeth: make sure the locking nut is actually locked down tight. the same thing happened to me. but seeing as you did this 6 months ago you probably figured it out.

Luisrox123: it has the original floyd rose, its the best kind of floyd rose, it will keep tune perfectly. that guitar is a GREAT choice

Rustinpeaces: I have a Jackson with a Floyd Rose with 10 gauge strings on it that tends to go out of tune more frequently than with 9 gauge strings. I'm running out of room on my fine tuning section of the guitar and was wondering if is it possible to unlock the guitar, retune it from the top, readjust the fine tuning to allow for more room and relock it without breaking the strings or doing any damage to the guitar? Thanks for any suggestions

kevinbatao: if floyd rose are gay..why does the guitar legends use them like eddie van halen, randy rhodes, kirk hammett, michael batio, satriani,steve vai,etc..respect!

LotusEater14: How so?

Airnickgr: man you are idiot no need to remove the lock at the top of the guitar you can put the string down of that so easy!!just loosen it a bit!Sorry for my bad english

Ryche9: is it a licensed floyd or an original floyd? cuz that makes a huge difference

Charlie Leo: im saving up for a epiphone em2 fx is the floyd good on that guitar

อภิพัฒน์ เทพพิทักษ์: not good than ibanez tremolo bro

muzglimy: i got the370dx

butane1245: i got the Ibanez RG 5ex1 4 days ago

Curtis Meece: some say this man is jesus. jesus cured a blind man, i think he can handle astygmatism

x5DG AsSyLyMx: just got the synyster standard this helped a butt load thanks

xRatedRSuperstarx69: My fine tuners don't work. I use the fine tuners to get my guitar in tune, but then after I just play a few power chords, it goes a bit out of tune again. It goes a bit flat. I tried fine tuning it like 100 times, but it still goes a bit flat after i play a few chords. What should I do? Someone please reply.

Michaël Kaspers: just keep it a strat... gibson are for rockers :D

Ziece4: If you want a great metal guitar get a shecter Hellraise ^^. IMO Shecter makes the best metal guitars. Of course there is dean, Ibanez, esp. But I love shecters!!! You can never go wrong with Shecter :).

faustoj26a: Awesome guitar!!! dont ya sell it?

CiviC092: @Metallicaforever95 dont ever put a tremolo or floyd on a les paul

Nick Murphy: the washburns floyds are junk. if ya want a real floyd then get a kramer striker. the only issue with those is its more difficult to re-string it. and you have to loosen the trem locks in order to tune the guitar.

Metayerthraxadeth: weelll. i played a schecter she-devil on a vox 150 watt tube amp at gc, and it was worse than my b.c. rich avenged son of beast. and i don't really like the sound of most schecters mainly cuz they sound too modern for me i'm lookin for that old school thrash sound, and that means b.c rich, esp, and jackson.

Rad Dlugowski: @ShadyStories Ah! I got a RG170DX just to avoid having to deal with a Floyd Rose. Sadly, though, now I wanted a piezo on my bridge and I can only find it in a Floyd Rose bridge. I did not purchase it YET so im not really an authority on tuning them but it sounds like you should wind the fine tune down, turn the rough tuners up, and THEN finetune it when they arent tightened all the way but somewhat in the middle. Again, this is only from observing Floyd Roses and im sure someone can answer beter

Ziece4: @JessyDevilVendetta I got a hellraiser deluxe and I want to get a C-1 Hellraiser so bad. I got a les paul gibson instead... Hellraiser C-1 FR is my next guitar!

oze9901: I got a Dean Dime O Flame ML with a floyd rose. Is it just to Spin the Tuning Lock and then tune the strings and put the lock back in or should i go to a pro?

1godlessmonkey: Holy crap!!!!!! It's JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!

Esteban Aguayo: Why did I buy a guitar with floyd?? Restringing is worst than hell. The floyd didn't even work because it detunes the freaking guitar.

pppoooppp: thats a hell of an insult you just gave the man.

freddy911304: Just a question! Will installing gotoh locking tuners help a guitar with a licensed Floyd rose from getting out of tune? Cus the locking nut isn't doing any justice!

Gabriel Vazquez: did you find the "balance" i can't on mine and I'M GOING CRAZY!!!!!

0xNecrox0: your guitar is either untuneble or you don't know how to tune i recommend buying an electric tuner :P or get an iphone app for it :P

Andrew Edelson: ibanez doesnt use floyd rose. they use edge III. theyre not bad. i recommend esp over ibanez tho. they use REAL floyd roses.

karlb1: You gotta keep adjusting the strings and the springs until they tune fairly easly, there are plenty of videos on ehre abotu it.

GRAFHC: Kurt Cobain!?!?!?! z0mg!!!

IdimmuXul: I have the same guitar ^.^ Only mine is pink. I am having alot of trouble tuning my Floyd to D standard . . . For now imma tune it to C standard and block it so it doesnt sink . . . is there a recommended string gauge that i shjould use for D standard??? This said, i'm probably just going to get a Tremol-no

LifeOnStandby239: good advice.

urdumb7: thats the same with me what i do is i just lossen the spring (this takes a while to get it done good) until i can have my guitar in tune without haveing a wierd tension on the brige

viletantrum: Charvel bitches!!!

Thomas Rönnberg: What if I wanna tune the guitar a step down? Should I screw on those to keep the whammy vertical?

rama6maiden: this guy suxx!!!

superbolli: nah i think he's ok

blkdaliamurder9000: I always have trouble screwing the screws back on i hate the L Wrench screws they always mess up and i gotta keep buying new ones because i tried to tight them then the hexagon shape for the allen wrench messes up and i gotta keep buying new ones, any advice?

karlb1: It's locked in already.

Britton Sloan: you need to adjust the tension screws in the back cavity of the guitar...you might be using gauge strings that wasn't originally set up for your guitar

messalion: @soullessSiIence 1st - restringing the guitar with floyd is very easy it only takes time - 2nd - why dont us try to use guitars with a better floyd than your cheap one and then ask yourself about detuning it - better try the floys of an ibanez and then ill take your opinion (no offence) :)) happy searching :D

JimiB1993: Ok... im not to sure if this is the proper way to do it but i read somwhere that if you tune in the following way it goes into tune quicker... 6th String 1st String 2nd String 5th String Keep doing that until all of them are in tune and not going out of tune. Then do the fourth and fifth strings just keep repeating that. dunno if it will help but its what i do. oh and yeah use an electronic tuner.

Illyrian: @builidza Bark Serbian dog, bark. Your desperation speaks volumes. Truth hurts, i know. Your fascist propaganda wil not work anymore, as now everyone knows what animals Serbs are. You are the scum of the Balkans and Europe. You are not even Europeans,since you are from the Karpates (mountains in Russa). You invaded the Balkans in the 6th century where you terrorised and murdered the autochtonous people of the region: the Illyrians, the ancesters of the Albanians. But one day, youll be finished!
