Ok, my guitar is currently at the shop because it my floyd rose bridge needs to be "set-up" so I can play it in drop c (CGCFAD). HERE'S MY PROBLEM. I play in drop C - CGCFAD and D standard - DGCFAD. Both tunings are the same, except for the 1st string. My guitar tech guy said:

"You can't change tunings when you have a floyd rose."

So, bummer. but! is there a way, that i could change from drop C, to D standard, with just adjusting the fine tuner on the 1st string???

Please help!

The D-tuna only works if your floyd rose isn't recessed.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

You could I suppose, however, your trem would slowly go out of tune. The thing about floating trems is that to get them to a desired tuning, you have to it floating parallel to the body. This is achieved by an equal amount of tension provided by the strings and the springs in the back. Once you go outside of that desired tuning, that screws up the trem's balance, which causes it to go out of tune. I may be wrong, so if I am I apologize.

You can do that, but you'll have to retune every few songs, your strings all slowly go out of tune as the tension increases/decreases, and it buggers up the balance of the bridge which complicates matters further.
