Tried changing the strings on my floyd equipped guitar today to heavier strings...

It was successful, kind of....

Every string is now on there, with the exception of the high E which unfortunately popped off somehow...

The bridge is parallel to the body on both sides, which surprised me cause there is no longer a high E....

This was my first time doing this, and i think the only place i ****ed up was when I had the trem blocked with the control plate from the back and when all of the new strings were on, I took the trem block out before tuning the strings. They also werent that stretched either.

I already know how to intonate a floyd, as well as set the action by turning the pivot points on the side with the allen key.

Basically what I want to know is what i will need to do when i put a new high E strong on...

Will I have to just adjust the spring tension on the treble strings side? Should i unlock all of the locking nuts pieces so that i can tune the guitar in case it goes shit out of tune?

Im a noob at this and im really confused. Thanks in advance!

to answer you your question is that a level deck is what you want. think of it like tug-of-war, where the strings fight against the springs. they have to be balanced. then you will have a flat deck.

Im still confused. Can you just answer my question please? What will I have to do if I want to put a high E string on without ****ing up the rest of the strings?

where did the small string "pop"? bridge in the floyd? did you accidentally use a tuning peg with the string locked down? braking at the nut?

is there another issues at all?

i gave you a link to show you everything possible. if you can't figure that out with a few more posts, go to a shop. odds that they will show how to do it proper for $10 or possibility free.

Just put the new string on and stretch em all out. No biggie.
