obviously it works, does exactly what its meant to do, but i find it much more practical to just use the fine tuner, that works too, and you'll still be able to pull up on the floyd, whereas with a d tuna you cant

it works ok, but it has its problems, and iv tried to set up like 3 of them and it does something to screw up the intonation on the low E string. Plus, yeah you cant pull up with them.

RHCP easy on the sarcasm, clearly if u cant pull up on the trem it doesnt do something i need it to obviously..but if i use the fine tuners, will i need to adjust the screws at the back?

Very rarely are the fine tuners able to tune that far in pitch and hold it acceptably. I know I can't go from standard to perfect D on ANY of my guitars with a floyd.

Pulling up the trem is for sissies anyway, divebombs are where its at.

I can't do it with any of my floyds and I have... 5.

Maybe its because I don't tune it with my E string all the in or something, but I know its not possible to be able to tune it down with the fine tuner and still have a usable fine tuner..

Which basically defeats the purpose of using the fine tuner... doesn't it?

Yah I can to on my S2170, but thats half because they don't put a cap/bearing/whatever on the bottom of the screw, so you can keep turning the fine tuner 'till it pops out...

the Dtuna only works if your trem is not reccessed, or you block it off.

Actually, no. You need to stabilize your bridge, if you downtune the fine tuner, then you'll have to retune all the strings. Unless that's what you meant. You can't just tune down the E to a D and call it done, unless you stabilize the bridge (and block it off so the tension doesn't change when you loosen a string).

I've seen guitars that have had a "perfect" tension, where the other strings stayed untouched by the dropped E... even though the bridge is floating.. I don't know how but it did..

but, with my ibanez, its got the zero point system in the back, so it stabilizes the strings in a similar manner...

The zr trem can cope with those kind of fluctuations in tension, a floyd-type can't...anyone who says otherwise simply can't tell if their guitar's out of tune.

it doesn't work on a floating trem unless you block off the cavity and make it "dive only".

it also has to be a licensced or original floyd rose.

yeah, basically. I set all my fine tuners around the middle, no way you're going from e to d with that...

Wrong. I have an old guitar I bought with a floyd rose and thats how I tune to drop D; fine tuner.

Then you clearly can't tell when you're in tune or not, because with a Floyd (Original or Licensed), once you change the tension of one string, the rest will change with it. Apparently from some posts in this thread the Ibanez trems can cope with the tension changes, but I don't have any experience with those, so take it FWIW.
