Probably not. mine did. check out a video on it on youtube, that's what i did. in case you didn't know already you have to adjust the springs in the back of the guitar everytime you change tuning or string gauge. also a recommendation for any guitar player with a floyed rose is to get a tremol-no. it locks your floyd rose set up so you dont have to adjust the springs in the back and it will give your guitar a better tone in general.

I think Ibanez guitars come with a manual but I'm probably wrong...
HILT!

Where's Waldo?

Or people can leave their Floyd's alone, and enjoy the pure awesomeness of a floating trem. If you're going to buy a guitar with a trem, with plans on blocking it so it doesn't move, why not buy a different guitar with a fixed bridge?

I want to buy this guitar with a locking trem but I'm worried I won't be able to set it up or tune or restring it. Can I send it to a shop so they can do all them things for me?

I finally got an axe with a Floyd Rose floating tremolo and not clue #1 how to restring or set it up! YouTube is your best friend in this case!!! I still need to tweek with mine but I think I have a pretty good understanding of it already.

You can send it to a shop, but that could get expensive fast having to send it every time it goes out of tune. It'll be better if you learn how to set it up yourself.

One reason I had the guy at my L&M to show me how to get it tuned and the bridge sitting parallel to the body.
Check out this thread it really helps teach you everything about trems and how to set them up.

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.

You should, as a beginner, be able to focus on a number of important thing, such as posture, technique, tuning, and tone, and not have to worry about the added complexity of a Floyd Rose, or any other floating tremolo. Changing strings on a Floyd isn't the hardest thing to do, but it takes practice, trial and error, and some know how. Changing strings on a hardtail isn't difficult to any experienced guitarist, but it's foreign to a beginner and is a good place to start.

Save yourself the headache and added stress while you're learning to play, get a hardtail or a strat style tremolo, it'll be much more appropriate for a beginner. You'd hardly have a need for a Floyd anyway, that is until you are comfortable and more experienced on the guitar.

As a beginner never mind worrying about changing strings or setting up a Floyd, you'll struggle to simply play a note without everything going out of tune which is a far more pressing concern.

Don't buy anything with a Floyd, get something with a fixed bridge or at most a strat-style trem.
