Hi!


I'm planning to get a Jackson RR3, it has a Floyd Rose. And I've heard that they are hard to tune, why?

And what are the other problems with Floyd Rose?

Floyd Rose = good
Liscenced Floyd Rose = Bad

Once you set them up a specific way they aren't too hard to tune... but if you want to mess around with different tunings and different types of strings then they can be a pain.
Gear:
ESP LTD MH-1000 w/ EMGs
Ibanez S470DX w/ Duncan JB & 59'
Schecter C-1+
Peavey 5150 Combo

MXR 10 band eq

WTB:

They're not really difficult to tune, it's more time consuming than a normal bridge though

An FR is probably the trem you'll ever find though.

Jackson floyd rose are awesome.

But the RR3 is a piece of uncomfortable crap, with a horribly small neck radius. I suggest you get a dinky or something, for just basic playing comfort.

JUST DON'T TAKE ALL THE STRINGS OFF AT ONCE

Some licensed FRs by Ibanez are awesome.

I hate these threads.. but if it's an original rose than it's good. If you know how to tune them, it's a wonderful addition to have.

Don't go calling the RR3's neck crap, it has the best neck I have ever played, I used to think that necks cant get better when I used to have the Ibanez RG321MH and then when I played the RR3 for 5 minutes I went mad with love. You're entitled to your opinion but you might want to state it in an objective manner the next time.

The Jackson Floyd rose is very good, I haven't had any trouble with it, but if you are going to change tunings all the time then I recommend a fixed bridge.

I think you mean: generic non-low-profile LFR on cheap guitars=bad. The Ibanez Edge, Edge Pro, Lo-pro, and the Jackson JT580 are all LFRs, yet they're all top notch (the JT580 not as much, but it's still decent).

And doesn't the RR3 have the same neck as a Dinky, or at least close?

ZR, Edge, Edge Pro, ZR Pro, Lo-Pro are amazing trems

Personally, i hate the OFR because the bars thred into the tremolo, they dont push in.
