hey UG, *hope im in the right place, if not, please notify me for another forum section*
i just got a new guitar today, the ESP LTD M100FM, and i just got a few things to ask.
this guitar comes with a Floyd Rose Licensed locking tremelo, i am unfamiliar with a floyd rose, i have read around online that "Ernie Ball Not Even Slinky" strings, 12 - 56, dont go good with the floyd rose, just want to clarify this true or false.

also, as i am new with a floyd rose, just asking for a few tips on tuning, as you probably guessed by my string choice, i downtune from drop C to A most of the time.
thank you in advance to anyone who has any information to help, i greatly appreciate it.

Make a pipe bomb and detonate it in your face. Then, persuade one of the ER doctors to leave some of the shrapnel in.

you will have to set it up with those strings tho, so you will have to add or remove springs etc etc

The guitar probably came with 9s from the factory, so going to 12s will require a neck and bridge adjustment. If you've never done either of these, I suggest having someone show you for the first time.

Why do you want to use 12s anyway?
