right, im saving up for a new guitar, and i change my tuning alot, and im not sure if i should choose a guitar that has a floyd rose because of this, so how much of a hassle is it to change tuning when you've got a floyd rose?

sorry for the dumb question

Changing tunings often for a Floyd Rose is gonna f*** you over.

Aside from it being harder to tune than a regular guitar, you need to adjust the bridge every time you do it so that the tension is good.

Just get a string thru or something.

if you change from a standard to a drop tuning (such as standard to drop d) i advise gettting a drop d tuna, but you will have to block the trem
#5
no floyd rose for me then XD

i find de-tuning my strat annoying already, >.<

now to find a decent string through guitar.

If you have the cash flow and it's absolutely essential that you have a Floyd Rose - buy a guitar for every tuning you use.

Steady cash flow really is essential to this though...

It's a pain in the butt...gets tedious. My FR geetar is tuned to Drop Db, and it's staying that way, because I will not fiddle with the set-up anymore, it's driving me mad >.<

its a nightmare. enough for me to be saving up for a hardtail even though the guitar i have now is fine. the undoing of the locking nut and constant readjusting of the bridge drives me nuts.

^If set up and locked tightly, it won't go out of tune for a few weeks even with abuse.

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.
