Hey guys, i was wondering if it would be okay if i drop tune my floyd rose guitar from standard to drop D using the fine tuners on the bridge. Would it mess up the action on my guitar if I did this alot? It's set up for standard E at the moment.

you wont get it using the fine tuners, you should retune the whole thing.

i can get it with the fine tuners, only if when the fine tuners are as low as they can go, you have an E.

I disagree it is fairly easy to do so. The only problem is, is that the other strings get a little bit out of tune. Luckily its manageable, just a quick once over and its back to normal.

It would mess up the whole tuning, because one string's tension would be out. You'd NEVER be able to get it in A=440 by doing it that way.

I had a locking trem and was able to switch between drop D and standard with ease. it was any other drop tuning that was a pain in the ass.

2 problems I can remember. The bridge needs to be a dive only, and they only work on OFR's I believe.
