With a floating tremolo? More specifically an Edge, Edge Pro or a Edge ZR model? How long would it take?

honestly.. if you don't know how to tune the tremolo a while.. if you now how to tune it and how to adjust the springs tension to compensate for the lower string tension not long at all, refer to the floyd rose settings thread for help its a sticky at the top

Let's just say it would take less time to go out and buy a good hardtail guitar, and tune that to drop D. :P

If you're experienced, "perfect" pitch tuning should take 10-15 minutes. If not experienced, 15 - 45 minutes.

and the words kept falling onto pages.
Without the loss we can't go on
and with the loss we became strong.

If I just dropped the tuning straight down so that the E and D string matched, how badly would it be off?

well since the ZR has that spring adjustment thing it might take less time to adjust the tension on the bridge... theres a video on youtube about setting up floyds by this german guy but I'm too lazy to look for it.

Just know this. Each time you do it, you'll be able to do it quicker.

But with ZR, you can just keep the stop-bar in and tune to drop D with the fine tuners, but you won't be able to whammy down.

Uhh the ZR goes both ways and doesn't have a built-in trem stop.

TS, i doubt tuning to Drop D would make a tuning change significant enough to not be able to fix with the fine tuners, so don't worry about it.

Yes it does, but it can be removed. It's called a stop bar.

It's the thing highlighted in red.

Yes it will. The tension is different and if you change it with the fine tuners it will still be slightly sunk into the cavity. You may just tune with the fine tuners and then adjust the bridge to counter it, but then your gonna have to tune again, and will run out of fine tuner. But the ZR is the only trem I know of that has a big enough fine tune range to go from E to D on the first string. Most fine tuners only have about a half a step range.

My LFR has a 1 1/2~ range.

OT, you can, but it would be in tune with other strings, not perfectly.
