It's the claw that you need to change. As in how far the screws holding it go into the guitar. Check out the sticky on how to setup a FR. Under tuning, part 4. Using the same string gauge but tuning...

No, they are licensed floyd rose bridges. The ball ends don't go through the bridge like the FR speedloader. You set them up exactly how you would a floyd.

Used Prestiges are the best bangs for the buck, hands down. You'll end up seeing a lot of cosmetically challenged RGs, but that's the nature of the sharp body edges. Almost like they were designed to...

I also own a 1570, 2550e, 2570 & 3570z and out of all of them my 1570 is by far the best playing out of all of them. Does it have fancy fret board markings or binding? Nope! Cool finish? Black, so...

That's just added character, leave it alone! Unless you permanently leave a guitar in a glass case, expect minor damage to happen.

Be nice if they had less blinged out ec1000's that cost less. Or had the quality upped. But I guess that's LTD's idea of deluxe!

For the same price, you can find used Eclipses. Like the one I picked...

The ESP will be better out of the box than the ec1000 (and more than likely the gibson standard as well). Once you go past $1000-1500, you run into diminishing returns on quality vs price. Is it...

Exactly. Well, tweaking the truss rod could have a tiny effect on the overall nut to bridge distance, but not enough to really be noticeable.

Well someone else has already taken the depreciation hit on the ESP, so you should be able to sell it for what you pay for if you don't gel with it.

When doing a tuning or string gauge change, look at doing a full setup. If you went from 9s to 10s, it's probably a simple truss rod adjustment.
