Hey guys. The floyd rose in my rg1570 was not parallel with the guitar body so i tried to make it parallel with the screwdriver from the behind of the guitar (by turning the 2 screws) Now i cannot tune it. It doesnt stay tuned. Is this a magor problem? Any ideas?

Tuning Floyd Rose:
1) Loosen the locking nut
2) Set your fine tuners to middle position
3) Tune up your guitar to standard or whichever tunings u wish
4) If the floating bridge comes out, loosen the tunings and then tighten the springs in the tremolo cavity at the back, if the bridge sinks, then vice-versa, until the bridge is parallel to the body.
5) If you're happy with your tunings and your bridge is well centered, lock in the nut
6) Tune again using the fine tuners

He probably just tightened/loosened it too much and making it all sharp or flat....
