I just tried putting 12-54's on my Jackson with a floyd rose, but the bridge is up too high and im not even completely tuned up. I thought it might work but what do ya know? it didnt. so im gonna put on a 10-46 set but leave my 54 on. Do you think that would work or should i put the 46 on instead? thanks

trial and error my friend, just go for it, you know to remove spring and screw the FR bolts farther down on the back.

10-54 is pretty much optimal for Drop-C if you don't need super tight strings.

I like super tight strings though, so I wouldn't string my drop-C guitar with anything below 11-58.

11 - 54 is great for drop c. Ernie Ball makes a gauge like that. I use 12 - 56s for Double Drop B on my one guitar and the tension is amazing.

That gauge would work fine.

Setting up a FR bridge isn't very difficult, I managed it my first go.
