There are many different dimensions on tuners, so the only way to make sure is to measure. My guess would be that they won't fit.

A Floyd Rose Original cost 290 last time I checked, and while most guitars does not come with that version stock, the less expensive 1000-series made in Korea surely warrants a price difference. Not...

You should always aim to reduce tension as much as possible. Tension is never good and will reduce accuracy, speed and in the long run it may lead to injury. Guitarplaying is sadly full of repetitive...

Except for the very much out of tune guitar on the chords, I think that sounded fine. The small examples of vibrato were nice, and it was overall pleasant to listen to.

C#m tends to be my favourite key. I like how it sounds as well as where the notes are in standard tuning. For soloing, at least. For rythm I have Em as favourite. That open low E is pure gold.
