ok now that i have your attention i have a floyd rose problem. now is it normal for brand new strings to require more tension at first than as they settle require less?
because every time i install string on my jackson(one at a time) my floyd bridge goes out of balance and strings start buzzing. could someone explain?

Yeah, you gotta' work the strings in. Are you sure you're not using different guage strings everytime you're putting in new strings?

lol i thought it was creative...
You do know that strings stretch right?

So usually u give them a little tug right before u take them out of the package, and then I usually string them, get them fairly tight, maybe try to tune them all a little sharp, and then let it sit for an hour or so...

thats just wut i do though, and its more difficult on a floyd.
If you did wut i did, and got a floyd on ur first guitar, be prepared for a lot of learning. WOOHOO

Well as you know, hopefully, a floyd rose, or any kind of floyd rose licenced product should be level with the body. It should not be angles inside of the boddy or outside.

once the strings break in and stretch out some the bridge will reposition itself, and as long you stay the same guage it should be the same level as it was before.

But tuning these are a pain too, u know that when you tighten one string, all the other strings go flat a little? Sorry im just checking sometimes people know and sometimes they dont, lol

they should require the same tension at all times when tuning. they lose their tuning new so less tension retune it back to same tension required to keep x string at y tuning
