I'm thinking about getting a guitar with a tremolo, and I've heard that locking floating tremolos (like a floyd rose) are good, but annoying to tune and restring. Would it be worth it for me to get a guitar with one if I don't really use a tremolo that much?

Well, if you don't use it much, yes. But I urge you to at least give it a try. You can always block it to dive only, which takes out a lot of the hassle.

do you often switch tunings? even going from standard to drop d is enough to throw everything out of tune.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Buy only Edge Pro/Zero Resistance/Original Floyd Rose trems. Licensed trems are extremely bad and last only for a bit.

If you don't want to dish out $1000 or so, then get a Ibanez S with Zero Resistance, it doesn't use knife edge, takes ball-end, holds tune better than most trems in that $ range, but have less pull-up range. If you can afford more that $1k, then knock yourself out since most of those have either Edge Pro (Ibanez) or Original Floyd Rose (others).

Isnt that what the EVH D-Tuner is for?

But id say you might as well give it a shot, They arent as difficult as people make them out to be. you just wouldnt want to have to Re- String or Tune at a show.

Also most bridges have there issue's at least with a floyd you can get a really low action if needed and its fun to mess around with at times... Also i like the way they feel when palm muting, more flat and comfortable..
