would locking tuners, roller or graphite string trees, and a graphite nut work just as well with a floyd as a locking nut?

nothing can compare to the stability of a high quality and properly set up double locking system. old fashioned tremolos cant survive big divebombs and intense trem usage in general. all that stuff will help it stay in tune a little but properly stringing up and the use of nut lube at all friction points on the string will get you 90 percent of the way there just by spending two bucks on good nut lube. i recommend rene martinez ceramic gel guitar lube. like i said no standard tremolo will survive several divebombs and be in tune but for subtle use just the lube will keep you in tune nicely. also you want to make sure the bridge plate and saddles are polished smooth and round wherever they touch the strings. and it doesnt hurt to lube up the trem studs and spring contact points either.

just as well? no. effective? yes. i have the full she-bang on my American Deluxe Strat, and i can do two or three full dive-bombs without any trouble.

however, if you were to go crazy, things would get out of tune pretty quickly.

it just depends on what you want to do

If it was as effective as a locking nut, everyone would just use locking tuners and a high quality, low friction nut. No one would ever bother with the hassle of installing and using a locking nut.

But they work well, and for some people, more than well enough.
