Okay, so my floyd rose (licenced, if that matters) is not parallel to the guitar body, its taking a little bit of a nose dive. It has been going out of tune a little more than it should be, and i think this is the problem.

If it is leaning FOREWARD, do i have to tighten or loosen the screws?

Thanks

You have to tighten the screws. Did you just put new strings on? Even if you put the same guage strings on, if the strings arent streched out the tension can change a lot.

alright, i got it. Thanks. It was a pain..i didnt have the right size screwdriver, and then i finally got the right size, and tightened it, put the plate back on, and tuned the strings, to find that now it was being pulled the OTHER way. But i finally got it, and my fingers hurt.
