I was thinking about getting a guitar with a Floating Tremolo and i keep hearing that they r a pain to changed tunings with but i havent seen somone say if u can go from standard to drop D easily. So do u have to retuned all the strings when u go from standard to drop D and vice versa?

Oh I love the grammar and spelling of UG...

Anyway, that is floyd rose bridges that are a pain to change.

A floating trem balances itself between the tension of the strings and the tension of the springs in the back. If you change the tuning you change the tension, which means you have to completely re-adjust the trem ever time you change tunings.

If you want to change tunings all the time dont get one. Unless you are very patient and have a lot of time on your hands.
