Floyd nut dilemma
You guys are always a big help. I figured also that this is the place to ask about Floyd Roses
I pretty much have had Floyds on all of my guitars since I was a kid but I have one with a strat trem that I recently bought. It has a neck on it that is set up and playing great with the guitar, and I donít want to mess with it. However, itís a Floyd nut. I have been playing without the lock blocks, and using locking tuners. Works great but I get this really loud high-pitched harmonic when I play the open high E string.
I tried the foam, and I canít get used to it. I also have one of those nut replacements that fit Floyd routes but I have to sand the slot a lot and the setup now is right with the Floyd nut. Also, this Floyd nut was filed down a little underneath so I canít really swap for another nut that I have laying around to see if the harmonic isnít there.
Has anyone just used the lock blocks and tightened them by hand just to solve this? I definitely donít want to tighten with the allen wrench in case I have to retune, which is why the fine tuners are so crucial on the Floyd. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
