i have recently restrung my Schecter Blackjack ATX which has an original floyd rose. I've restrung it once before without problems. But this time the low e-string wont stop popping out of the saddle. I have tightened it and its held in there but it always pops out help please.

it might be that the string is too short? or that you didnt tighten it enough?
i dunno the only floyd rose I had were the lo pro edge and the ZR
#3
i have tightened it enough for sure.

yeah, but sure enough string is going through, and you are tightening it enough.

Maybe replace the little block?

No. Just loosen the hex screw on the back and pull the block out. It's not held in by anything.

Try pushing the string in more, it may just work.

Try pushing the string into deeper into the guitar body. Check to make sure the end of the string isn't bent either, make sure its straight, it will make it easier. Is it the same string gauge that you used before?
#10
no i changed the string gauge. i've tried to push the string as deep into the body as i can get it. this is the most bizarre and frustrating thing i've ever seen on a guitar

also, if i do tighten it and it stays then the string will all of a sudden stretch at the bridge and any further will make it break. for strings i am using elixirs semi-coated strings .10-.42 gauge, before i was using dunlop .10-.52 hybrid strings.

are you tuning the guitar with no other strings on? i did this a few times until i realized that 1 string couldn't hold the pressure - you wanna get a few on there then tighten it up, or have a block under the tremolo so its not putting as much pressure on the strings if this is the case.
#13
yes all the other strings are on and have stayed in tune until the other string pops out.
