Good video. I've never used a FR and never will, but after watching that video I don't see what the fuss is about.

^ agreed. to be fair, you probably have to think things like hair metal are cool, but if you do, floyds are awesome fun.

I've just replaced the strings on my Edge Pro, but the thing keeps tilting out towards the bridge even if I'm followjng the guide. The springs won't tighten up anymore, either. :S

Increase the action by adjusting the pivot screws (tremolo posts)

I wondered where this had got to - deserves a bump in light of the ridiculous number of Floyd threads at the moment.

madpick actually reminded me of it himself, but he's far to cool to bump his own thread

I've got a question for you guys.

I just got a new guitar, a custom built strat. It has a Schaller Floyd Rose, the regular kind. Now, the guy who built it, he put some really big gauge strings on it, I think 11-52. Well I restrung it with 9-46 and now I have to adjust the bridge so it won't descend into the its cavity.

Of course I could let him to do it, but he's really busy all the time so I'd probably have to wait for a week or so... So my question is, should I do it myself or can I damage something? It seems easy tho, just loosen the 2 springs in the back right? Oh and it has 3 springs

Very good as always, nothing particularly new to me, but it is fantastically concise comapred to some other guides I've seen around elsewhere, where people blather on for ages.
Nicely done

You've got it right, just don't overdo it, and slacken the strings slightly before you do it, *then* tune to pitch, at least that's what I learned...
