and lately I notice that with my guitar
when I'm jumping it goes out of tune u___u
this is maybe, for the floating tremolo system, right?

and I was wondering...

because i really want one guitar that i can go crazy with

any ideas? or should I keep with TOM bridge guitars u__u?

thanks in advance and sorry for my english jeje

Hardtail > Tremolo anyday. Try blocking your FR though, that should help tuning stability a lot.

if you like your guitar and dong want to buy a new one, take a look at tremel-nos
Theyll help stabilize the bridge so it wont go out of tune

with a loating trem, the locking nut should stop it going out of tune, that's why the floyd rose sytem was designed the way it is, so you can jump up and down whilst whammying at the same time

You should make sure your strings arent ancient either; with the locking nut, strings shouldn't be going out of tune too much. If they are, its usually a sign that its time for a new set.

That's your opinion not a fact, don't state it like one. I have a floyd rose on my guitar and have never had a problem moving around on stage other than hitting the bar by accident. Try jumping around without the bar in and see if maybe you were just hitting it by accident.

If your floyd is a real floyd and not a crappy licensed floyd then you shouldn't have this problem.

I use guitars with a trem religiously and never have them go out of tune unless I whack my headstock on something.

sounds weird that it would happen with the locking nut and all, but I guess head trauma messes everything up :P

Well, here's most people's issue. Those locking nuts -- set them so that they only rest upon the strings. Don't tighten them down all the way. Let them rest on the top of the strings. And make sure you're hand tightening them -- do NOT use an allen wrench!

I had a guitar tech tell me this one time, very knowledgeable guy called John. John said that doing what I just described allows the guitar to stay in tune better. You can also still use the tuning pegs to tune it. I've followed John's advice for a few years now, and the only time I have tuning issues is when I replace the strings. That doesn't last very long though, about a week or two, and it's expected with any guitar.

Edit: DO NOT DROP IT AGAIN, especially on the headstock side. ARGHH! Damn you, TS!

the thing is that i jump in song that need the bar
and I'm so lazy to remove the bar jeje
and i think, when I jump the bar moves in many direction's and then it pull's up or pull's down the bar or something

its an original floyd

I think I sad the wrong things
when I jump the tremolo or bar moves and it raises or lowers the pitch
but just in that moment, the string's doesn't go out of tune

I'm so sorry guys

thats why I was asking about the other trems that lowers pitch only

sorry again!!
