It's not that bad switching from E to D but it is a hassle to tune half step down or any tuning that requires you to change all the strings' pitch.
#9
Annoying for changing strings & tunings, but if you have it set up right, you can just use the fine-tuners to change between, for example, E standard & drop D
#10
it is my understanding that the D-Tuna only works with non-recessed floyds.


if you are only planning on staying on one tuning then the floyd is a great system. if you like changing tunings then it's a pain in teh ass .

i for one, love it. and i actually changing tunings on purpose just so i can readjust the bridge

d-tunas work on recessed too. but they have to be blocked into a dive-only way.

and to TS: FRs, IMO, are one of the greatest guitar inventions EVER.

and you would have saved all of us time by just google-ing "Floyd Rose"...

yeah, that's what i meant. you can't use a D-tuna and have the recessed Floyd on full floating at the same time.


either way i think that if the TS doesn't even know what a Floyd is, then he should stay away from it.

i got one about half a year ago. it becomes more of a pain then it's worth. makes me wish i got a guitar with a stopbar tailpiece, or string-through.
Save Gibson

^Do it, if you want Gibson to stop with the poor QC and terrible new guitars...

they're absolutely amazing if you stay in one tuning. otherwise i'd suggest any other kind of bridge tbh.
