Hello everyone. I've been having questions on how to change the tuning on my Floyd Rose equipped guitar (Washburn N2 http://www.washburn.com/electrics/nuno/n-2.html) without too much hassle/risking messing up

Another user mentioned the Tremol-No on another thread, and I've checked it out and it seems to be just what I need

I do have a question about it for those of you who know/have this:

If I install this on my guitar and set it to Hardtail mode (for reference http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiZnipHc1ec), will I be able to change tunings on it just like I would a normal hardtail (i.e. turn the pegs and be done with it), or would I have to reinstall the Tremol-No every time I want to change the tuning?

Thanks!

Blocking it is easier and much cheaper, the only benefit of a Tremol-no is the dive-only feature.

Well, either way, simply blocking it or using a tremol-no, will I be able to tune it like I would a hardtail or will I have to take the care needed with floyd-roses, i.e. "cross-tuning" and such?

Yes.

You should install a EVH D-tuna on every saddle then you have the ability to drop tune 1 or all strings!!!!

On a more serious note, Yes you can tune like a hard tail, but the nut is locking.

I'm not sure I understand your comment on the nut. Yes it's locking, but can't I just unlock it at the nut, tune using the headstock pegs (or the fine-tuners, they should still work fine right?) and then lock again? Maybe I could just even leave it unlocked at the nut.
Would any of this be a problem?

Thanks!

Haha okay. I guess I'm just too much a newb too keep up with you guys =P

Can I annoy you guys just one last time?

The model I should look for is the one that says Floyd Rose® Licensed tremolo systems (Jackson®, ESP®, etc.) right?

Thanks!

Yes. The Tremol-no does what it claims to do and does it well. I used one on a Highway One Strat and it offers a lot of stability. It also blocks it like a hartail with a twist of the thumb wheel screw. If you're going to fiddle with it a lot while playing (use a lot of different tunings, etc.) then you'll have to leave the plastic cover off of the back of your guitar in order to get to the adjustment thumb wheel screw, but it works. It had ought to be a bit less expensive, though.
