Hey i am cleaning my jackson rr24 right now the strings are all off and i even unscrewed and took off the floyd rose to see if i can replace the screws that keep it in place but couldn`t find any knew ones but the screws should last till next string changing. this is my first time restring a floyd rose completly and i am watching step by step videos on youtube on how to do it, however i only have Dr 10-46 gauge strings can i use these for D standard tuning, I just need to set up so i can practice in this tuning i use the whammy bar so will the tension be to tight. And how do i check to see if my intonation is set up for D standard. Thanks for all the help guys UG members rock!
Yeah you can, but I find the 10 gauge to be far too loose for it. I use 11 myself. My band's lead guitarist uses 10-52 D'Addario set. So probably your bends will be quite easy, cause the strings aren't tight.
do you know how to set your intonation? It's the same thing, just make sure you're tuning to D at the headstock, and set your intonation with the fine tuners and intonation screws (to D of coarse)
I do that exact thing on my jackson dinky. Works fine,
