So the strings on my guitar get locked in the trem (floyd rose) and the head nut. Would it somehow be overkill to buy locking tuners too? Or is that perfectly OK and I'm just being a weirdo?

It must depend on the kind of tuner, but my locking tuners have knobs you tighten on the back of the head (aka the part you can't see in those pictures).

A knob or screw on the back will lock them. I think some models have the screw on the top.

Not worth buying m8 since the strings are locked at the headnut and cutting out the tuners.

I broke a string once between the tuners and the locking head nut and it stayed like that (in tune) with no probs for a few days wink.gif
