hmmmm. yeah, its leaning a little bit forward.

4 springs... I'm not used to 4. That seems like a lot to me. But I guess it depends on how far in those spring tension screws are. Yours dont look that far in.

remember that if you change tuning and dont adjust the bridge position too its going to pull forward when you tune UP and lay back when you drop it DOWN.

Well once this is tuned it will be staying at this and my schecter (solid bridge) can just change tuning if I need

Like I said ill take some pics soon of the guitar just now so you can see the difference and if it helps any.

That video I was watching is telling me things like getting the bit above the bridge of the harmonics right etc.... so theres lots I need to take into account, I love learning the likes of Alex Laiho who uses the whammy and harmonics for alot of stuff so it would be good to learn into this.

Ok I got my strings through this morning, now I dont know if its cause ive watched about 100+ videos on it, got alot of help especially from you, or just that someone took pitty but it seems its fixed lol.

I put them on but used a bit better knowledge on what im doing and ive got it, the bridge seems to be level, its staying in CGCFAD tuning and the strings are close enough to play, thers a little buzz but I record direct via USB so I dont mind that as much.

I will post some pics later once I find my damn camera,

Btw see when im changin a tuning on it, like from CGCFAD to DGCFAD, do I unlock the nut, and change with the tuning pegs or just use the fine tuners?

buzz - A small amount of buzz isnt an issue. If you want low action, sometimes you have to deal with it. A professional luthier can take care of it for a cost.... If you cant hear it thru the amp I wouldnt worry about it. To raise the strings a bit turn those bridge screws counter clockwise a half turn at a time and see what happens. This will effect tuning so be prepared to retune.

fine tuners vs pegs - thats up to you. If you can make it all the way to your drop tuning with fine tuners go ahead. No harm in either one really.

Bridge is level? Awesome. Did you drop to 3 springs?

No funny enough it was just a little off balance, then I put the 4th spring in, retuned and it was level lol.

I wasn't going to go there. smile.gif

Seems off to me too. But since he had similar strings on before it must have worked ok for him.

I get the GHS Zakk Wylde Heavy Weight Boomers. (10-60) for lower than standard tunings.

I usually get 10s for DropC but they never had any in stock so I had to go for 9s temp.

So when I get new strings I just:

Take one string off, put one string back on, tune
Then the next, same thing
and again

Then just tune all again, put nuts on, tune again and done?

yep!

If you go to bigger strings, that will mean more tension. So you may need to tighten the spring screws a bit to get the floyd flat again.

But first rule is take one string off, then replace it before taking another off smile.gif

Thanks for all your help smile.gif

Now get back to practising and get my first video online smile.gif
