I just got a flying v copy with a licensed floyd rose on it in a trade. I love the guitar a lot but I have been having some tuning problems with it. I don't use the whammy bar at all but when I play it for more than a few minutes it goes flat. It has a locking nut. I really don't want to have to deal with changing the strings with the floyd. Would blocking the floyd and removing the locking nut and replacing it with a regular one help with the tuning?

Blocking the FR will be sufficient, there's no need to remove the locking nut.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.

it would help but replacing the locking nut with a regular could be weird .the locking nut has a wider base than a regular nut froem what ive seen but yeah

well blocking it would definitely help but you cant replace the nut from a locking to a regular because of its size and the way it is installed . i suppose you could but it would look very good and would be a lot of trouble since blocking the floyd would most like solve your issue
Stuff that I bought:

Washburn WM24V
Raven RG100 Amplifier
Zoom G1X Multi-Effects Pedal

how do you define a guitar for a female?
how about one that whines and has trouble with feedback?

How old are the strings?
Music stores give all gear a +50 to Charisma.

Why not chromatics? Chromatic harmony was the "new thing" in the romantic era.

Not that old. It's a brand new guitar that the music store put some ernie balls on it.
