Edge pro fine tuners question
I must precede this by saying that I have no problem, in general, with FR-type bridges, I know how to use them, and I regularly do set ups for friends and myself, properly and all, and wonder why so many people dislike the design. However, I want to ask and get it once and for all:
How do you use them fine tuners on Floyd-type equipped guitars, and how often? I am asking this because I have this strange aversion to using them. Each time I hear the guitar drift ever so slightly out of tune, I open the top lock and tune. Which is sad, because I do own an instrument that I like a lot, but rarely use it because of minor tuning issues that may show up while double-tracking, etc. The rest of my herd are stop-tails and Gotoh 510s.
So, once I have the fine tuners in the middle position, guitar tuned and the nut locked, do I use the fine tuners? When is it time to open the lock and tune - when fine tuners don't really tune any more? Are they just an aid for correcting very minor tuning issues?
