A floating trem is not good for changing tunings. It's that simple. Put it in one tuning and keep it there. Or block your trem.

Couldn't you just get longer screws for the fine tuners and extend the range on your existing trem? Assuming they will fit without hitting anything.

It's not a Floyd Rose 1000 though, it's a FRT-O2000. I'm reading it's similar to the Floyd Special. For what ever that is worth.

The LTD is also significantly more expensive than the Jackson.

Pretty sure you can only use delay tone print sounds on a delay pedal. You need their chorus pedal for chorus sounds. At least that is what I userstood when I was looking into these pedals.
