Can I use heavier strings on a floyd rose unit without any real adjustment needed? Other than basic intonation type stuff, I've heard people mention that they need some kind of other adjustment as well (unless I misunderstood). I'm assuming the only thing besides adjusting intonation would be changing the strings and since it's all locked with the tremol-no, it shouldn't be an issue, but I've never used a floyd before, I'll be picking up my first floyd-equipped guitar in the next few days and it comes with a tremol-no (which I plan to use)

If it didn't have the lock you might have had to add a spring. But with the tremolno you shouldn't have an issue.

So the obvious question is: if you're going to buy a guitar and use heavy strings on it and block the Floyd...why are you buying *that* guitar?

It's a cheaper floyd but the guitar is all good, otherwise. Nice guitar and hey, who doesn't like extra tuning stability.
