I was runing drop c on mine and im running it on my esp now. Just takes patience and knowing how the trem works... Some of it is skill some of it is luck lol.

Best thing is have a tech set it up for you, or do alot of research on the internet. Best option for you.

Basically you want to...

1)Tighten springs and tune
2)Tighten springs and tune
3)Tighten springs and tune
4)Loosen springs and tune
5)Tighten springs and tune
6)Tighten side to side tension and tune
7)Loosen side to side tension and tune
8)Then lock down and fine tune once bridge is level
9)Now check intonation
If intonation is off unlock nut and start working on that while doing steps 1 thru 5 again if you can't adjust with fine tuners...

Hope that helps... that is just a really basic run down of what usually happens when tuning a floating bridge its not exact by any means...

Use 11-50 from GHS.
I put these on mine Ibanez (an RG350) and it worked without
tighting/losing the springs.

Well, if you tune them up again, you'd have to go through the tedious adjusting proces anyway...
