Okay, I took the advice and reset my bridge, got the b'itch all tuned up . . . it took me like 2 hours to get string tension + spring tension + bridge height all in the right spot -- do you cats do that every time you put new strings on your axe?

Conicidentily, do you notice longer string life with the floater?

Shorter, actually. That's just because I get a lot of sissy stick action.

I changed strings today—9's to 11's, standard tuning to C standard, and it took me about 40 minutes to get the tension/tuning right. It was only the 2nd time tuning down to C, so it's not like I knew exactly how many springs to use and where to put them. I've just been using this guitar for 4 years now and I know how my bridge works, and all the little nuances with it.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?
As long as you stick to the same gauge strings and tuning then only minimal adjustments will be needed when changing strings.

I notice no difference in string life.

You're right, just about the only thing better than a Spider 3 is an MG : )

I had not used a floating bridge until I got my new guitar on Friday....

It also took me an hour or two to get the bridge sorted. Its now level with the body, perfectly in tune and had a sweet low action...

Can't say I'm looking forward to the first string change tho'...

It may be hassle but the crazy noises you can produce sure make up for it
