I've got my Washburn X40 with a Floyd Rose currently set up to Drop D with Skinny Top Heavy Strings and the bridge is currently balanced with the body. My question is, If i tune the E string from D to E to make it standard, will the bridge level be affected in any way? Will it be OK?

No you should be fine. I do it all the time

I hope so, I don't want the tension messing up my Truss rod either

If you tune ur D up to E, you'll have to tune all the strings, cause the change in string tension will make all the other strings flat. Then theres always the possiblily that the fine tuners will run out of headroom. And even when u retune all the strings to pitch, the bridge will then sit up slightly, and be more prone to snapping strings when you pull up. Action will raise the tiniest bit.

But there's no way that slight tension change will mess up your truss rod, So don't fret about that.

But i would like to get a fixed bridge 7 string, just for differnt tunings and extra low. Cause doing this is a pain in the arse.

messing up your truss rod? ...really?


Hard to imagine not every owns 6 guitars, ain't it?

On topic: OP just do it, no permanent damage will be inflicted even if the bridge decides to ride up a bit on you.

Ah ok as one of the dudes mentioned above I'll do that by tweaking the fine tuners. Thanks for the help
