So while I was cleaning my guitar that has a floyd locking nut, I was wondering what will happen if I accidentally tighten or loosen the tuning keys while the strings are locked, will the nut or strings break? I've tried searching around on the Googles but I couldn't find any answers for this so if anyone knows or had any experience of this, please do leave a reply
nut no, strings potentially yes. if they are locked in place then it may not matter until nut is loosened but they could still pull out with bar use.
Common sense dictates that the strings will break long before the nut will.
Nut no, strings yes.
