Would I be correct in guessing you tune the B, then E, then A, then D, and so on, then find it's out of tune?
Tune up as close to perfect as you can with the nut unlocked, then clamp it and adjust the fine tuners randomly. You'll probably find, as I have, that if you do it one at a time from low to high in order, it'll make vitually no difference, all the strings will remain the same relative to each other. For instance, try tuning down a half-step using your fine tuners - doesn't work, does it?
For tuning purposes, you have to think of a floating bridge as a single unit where every part affects the others, not as six (or seven) separate saddles.
