Ummm dude you can only tune with a floating trem by using the fine tuners unless you unlock the nut then you can use the tuning machines. For tuning down you would need to do this as the fine tuners are only really designed to be used if your tuning is only slightly off not applying a whole new tuning.

Is your bridge level if its not you need to adjust the springs in the back so that it is my guess is that it isnt.

I would say try and get it really loose so that you have alot of play in it then try and take it off.

Congrats on making one of the most useless posts I've ever seen. You're at a close second with the "lol" at the top of the page.

TS, so what you're saying is, one of the three clamps on the locking nut, the one cover E and A, will not move to allow you to change the string tuning?

Well, sometimes they are sticky. Does the screw turn, but the clamp stays? If so, loosen the screw and use a tool like pliers to move the clamp. If the screw doesn't turn, or is stripped, take it to the shop you bought it, I'm sure they will help you.

Rofl good to know.
At this point though, I'd just buy a new nut for like $20 or whatever it may be.

Maybe try prying it out or something?
