wanted to say thanks for the post Andrew. This video helped me with a re-string on my older jackson with a jt500 bridge.

I am quite fond of this video:

Floyd Rose Tremolo setup (English)

What's great is that you can change all strings at once, and polish your fretboard while your guitar neck is string free. wink.gif

QUOTE ("Steve Vai")
Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

Potential stupid question...why did he take the battery out & put the spoon in? Couldn't he just have left the battery in?

Great and a very helpful post! Thank you very much for sharing! Floyd Rose can be really annoying when you have to change strings or adjust it! This videos will make it easier!
