Re: Anyone here setup a RG 920 for Drop D Tuning
Let me explain a little bit:
With a floating tremolo, the tension of the string has to be equal to the tension of the spring, in the back of the instruments. This is how the tremolo is floating.
Now, depending on your needs, you might have to do two things:
First, if you intend to STAY in drop D all the time, you'll have to tune and adjust the sprint tension so that the lost of tension (from going from E to D) is equalised in the springs. if you do need this solution, look for guide on how to adjust the tension.
You would also have to adjust the intonation on that string for a perfect tuning. And, same thing for the the intonation, just look for "how to", you'll find it.
Second, if you want to gro BETWEEN tunings, such as standard and Drop D, you will need to block the floating bridge in "dive only" mode. This can be done in a matter of way, from the cheapest; puting a stack of penny or a block of wood between the tremolo block and the body of the guitar (on the string side), or to a costlyer tremol-no or any tremolo stopper.
Either way, you can tune to drop D, no matter what instrument, but it has to be compensated for a floating bridge.
