and does it matter that there are no wounds around the pegs if everything is working fine?

You didn't leave enough slack in the string before doing the winds. You should have at least a couple winds around the tuning pegs, but with a floyd rose, it shouldn't matter too much, once you've locked down the nut. In the future, try to get some winds on there, though. Also, a floyd will definitely require some adjusting after going from a standard 9 set to a 10-52. Is the bridge floating flat?

Don't worry about it this time, people have broken headstocks clean off and continued playing with locking nuts on their guitars.

The next time you restring, you need to leave some slack on the strings before you start winding. Placing your free hand at the nut so that the string gets a hand-width of slack is a good way to get the right amount for 3-4 winds around the post.

If you've changed string gauge, and not adjusted the Floyd Rose spring tension to balance it out, you need to make sure the bridge is level. The easiest way to do this is the following:

1. Block the bridge where it is level.
2. Tune the guitar to desired pitch.
3. Remove block.
4. Adjust springs at the back until the guitar is back in tune.
5. Tighten the locking nut and fine tune.

How you know you have too many guitars...
