Sorry if this isn't in the right section, I don't really post.

Okay, so I'm re-stringing my Jackson DX10D with a floating floyd, and I took all the strings off to clean the bridge(it was dusty as hell - never really cleaned.) and now I'm restringing it with a set of Ernie Ball Beefy Slinkys, and I just restrung up to the D, and I'm totally not able to use it. The action on that 1 string is alot lower than all the others for some reason. It's hitting up against the frets if I hit some of the lower frets on it, and I was wondering why this was doing this.

Sorry if this is kind of a retarded question, but this is urgent, IMO.

bump.

EDIT: The reason I bumped it this late was because I've been looking around, and I can't find a fix to this problem. Plus, I've also been putting it off.

gotta get all the strings on and get the bridge floating.

once all the strings are on and tension'd a little, the bridge will begin to float, then you have to continually (and systematically) tweak and retune every string in series until the bridge floats even and you're in tune.

FR bridges are bitches.

Yeah, I knew that, but what I'm talking about, is the the D string's action is alot lower than the E or the A string's action.

Does the bridge appear to be 'sinking' into it's route? Or is it still parallel? If it's parallel then just increase the action. Although have you got all 6 strings on yet? Because just reading your first post again it seems like you don't.

Did you take the saddles off to clean it? Each saddle is a different height, to match the radius of the fingerboard. The must go back in the same position, or you'll have a problem like you described.
