Hey guys, i recently got a epiphone plustop pro fx equipped with a floyd rose special.

So i've set it up correctly...(i think) when i dive, it stays perfectly in tune. but when i pull up, the 6th string goes sharp. all the other strings also go sharp. could you guys give me some pointers on how to stop this? its getting annoying.

Thanks

Are you sure that you have stretched the strings well enough? it will do that for a little while until they are stretched. At least mine does everytime i replace the strings. then its perfect

Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

There's part of your problem right there.. Sometimes a little machine oil on the knife edges will help.

So in typical UG fashion you decided to give advice on something you know nothing about.

If you're not familiar with the product you shouldn't give advice on it. New springs won't help this problem at all.

TS: First try some machine oil on the knife edges (as the other guys have said).

If that doesn't work, you may have a catch point somewhere on your bridge or on the nut. I had a similar problem with the ZR bridge on my Ibanez. Pull up on the bridge, and listen for a ping. Wherever you hear the ping, that's where the catch point is.

Well, in California, people carry around devices that control the minds of bears. So expect to see people walking their bears.

Also, don't be surprised if some robot hookers try to solicit sex to you on the streets.

just dive bomb and pull up on your guitar like 10 or so times, the furthest it can go, and tune it from there. you just need to stretch the strings out first.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

this is going to sound stupid but make sure you do not put the locking nuts on wrong. i always get confused

or perhaps even....

this is going to sound stupid but make sure you didn't put the locking nuts on wrong. i always get confused
