I don't even understand how that can happen, even if you do not understand what a locking nut does then surely you would figure it out what is happening before tightening the peg so much that it actually snaps the top part of the string off...

The sad thing is while this thread has been up, he has probably done exactly the same thing to the other 5 strings.

You can only tune it to drop C. Or another joke that's funnier.

OP, return the ****ing guitar. Now. It's not worth the trouble. You can do better for the money.

This.

Also, loosen the nuts up by the headstock; they should NOT be holding the string down. Make them just tight enough to rest gently on top of the strings. That way, you can use the tuning pegs. It also adds to tuning stability.

Because he clearly worships AX7 for some dumb reason.

Edit:
You'd also better check out this thread, which is what you should have done before even buying a guitar with FR.

Does it work if you try to whammy without the whammy bar?

Why would you dump a grand on a guitar that you can't figure out how to tune? I wish I had gobs of money I could throw at things that I didn't know how they worked. Stupid having children.

So...if you love AX7 and consider them totally br00talz (like our TS), then tuning to drop C would make you...more br00tal than AX7!!!




Edit:
Note for TS: Drop tuning a FR is NOT recommended, unless maybe you got a guitar tech (try your local music store) to set it up for you properly. FR's are set up to be in standard tuning in the factory. They'll need to re-set up for any other tunings.
