Ok, I had a student walk in with a ****ing gay ass floyd rose discovery. Now will someone tell me how the **** are you supposed to tune somthing like that. I will post a pic as an example of it's gayness



EDIT: I just put in a call to a local tech, and he doesn't how the hell to tune it
If you can play music with enthusiasm and an honest effort, then no matter how flawed, noisy and unclean the music is, you are a musician. If you play just to be the best, you are not a musician, nor are you worthy of any musician's recognition. - me

You've just answered your own question there.
The strings come in prefabricated lengths for different strings and tunings.
When stringing a system like this, you'd most likely be diving the bridge completely, then hooking on the bullet in the saddle on the bridge. The other end you've already hooked on the nut at the headstock.

I believe the system is called Floyd Rose Speedloader. You'll get them both as fixed and floating bridges. The system basically eliminated the need for a headstock (such as the headless Steinberger guitars). It's been said that with this system, a pro can resting an entire guitar in less than a minute, as opposed to the standard Floyds, which can be a major pain in the ass to restring.

goddamnit, i hate those things, but i think you un lock the locking nut and tune then lock it back and then you use the tuners down on the bridge to fine tune, Im not sure though, ive never owned one.

Can I ask why your so mad about it?

^ Exactly. And seeing as it ruins my rep as a teacher just cuz I don't know floyd's freaky-deaky tuning system, it pisses me off that much more.

No, the bridge is called Speedloader. The strings would probably just be something like "strings for speedloaders".
