Ok, if anyone read a few of my old posts, you'd know i have a RG350DX, and it was in the shop with floyd troubles, well, i got my baby back, but i am really scared of the tuning now. I have heard mainly from the net that the proper way to tune is to unlock all the screws at the nut, go down from 6 to 1, lock the strings, and then fine tune. BUT the people who work at he guitar store say you should only unlock 1 screw at a time, do the 2 strings associated with that screw, and then lock it and move onto the next one, after that use fine tuners.

Which one is correct? or are any?

thanks

Shouldn't make any difference I believe. If you just loosen the upper one for the particular string/strings and then fine tune the rest it should be ok. But I just got a floyd so dont take my word for it, it's just what Ive gathered from my music store.

Hey i use Floyd for many years and i was always unlocking all of the screws so actually there is no difference between those 2 methods.

I have the EXACT Same guitar as you, and i know what youre talking about, sometimes it seems that if you unlock all the screws, the bridge might pull on the strings a little to much and de-tune them. since there isnt the nut to hold the string it might go out of tune. i usually just undo one nut tune it, tighten it up, and do the rest, just as a precaution

Also, The RG350MDX Uses and Edge Pro III Trem System, so it might differ slightly from floyds
