So I am getting my first guitar with a floyd rose(original floyd rose) and I sometimes tune to low or very low tunings. I want to eventually change the strings out for the Zack Wylde signature strings because they are very thick on bottom (.60 mm) and thin on the top for leads. I read somewhere on line that if I change to thicker strings I am going to strip the nuts on the floyd rose. Is this true? If so, how can I change to low tunings?
i have never read this, and i dont see how it would strip out the nut. the only thing i have heard of striping out on the nut is the screws for the locks when people over tighten them.
Ok thank you.
those strings may not even fit into the locking block at the bridge. i think the max string size is .56 but im not 100% sure.
changing strings on a guitar with a F.R. bridge is an art in itself.
