Hello, today I purchased a Schecter Hellraiser special FR and well I have never played with a floyd rose before so I didn't know what to expect. So being ignorant... I took off all my strings and now I can't keep my floyd rose flush to the body of the guitar. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I really want to know why you took off all of your strings. If you haven't put them back on, that's probably a big factor in it.

This, put them back on asap if you haven't already.

That's a great link he posted. As a general rule for all guitars, never take all of the strings off at once, unless you are doing something that requires that, like refinishing or something.

When you change strings you should take one off and replace it. Don't take all of them off at the same time.

i often take all the strings off so i can better clean the fretboard and frets and also get the crud out of the pickup and bridge area. I only have hardtail or bigsby style trems so that makes life much easier. Usually string replacement = complete guitar cleaning inside and out.

It might mess your intonation up though.
