hiya, just got my s470dx

yeah juz got it s470dxqm. anyone has a link to how to tune a zr bridge? it seems to be amazing simple, i juz pt in the string and tighten the allen key? wat the screw area for? (the one u can tighten with yr thumb), at 1st i didnt bother about tat and guess wat, i did afew whammy, and all 6 strings came off argh. and how do i adjust the action? adjust before i tune? or after i tune? i tried to adjust the action before tuning, and after tunning the action somehow become super high, and the bridge seems to be moving high as i tune, is tat common?

Re: hiya, just got my s470dx

hmm i already followed what it did. i already tighten the allen key as it said, and spent quite long getting it tune properly. after tat i went to do some whammy work and the string actually came off from the saddles area. (it didnt break, it juz came off). i already tighten the allen key, which steps am i missing? and whats the nut thingy tat u can tighten it with yr finger? do i need to adjust that?

Re: hiya, just got my s470dx

probably a groove on the block is allowing the string to come off.

the thumbscrew is for the tremstop i guess

Re: hiya, just got my s470dx

i found out waht my problem. i change my strings to 0.12 and the bridge is probably facing up instead of flat, my bad didnt know about that until i read every single thing in rich website. and the thumb thingy is for fine tunings. hopefully i didnt do any much damage to the neck. and one thing, floyd rose seems amazing simple! i always tot the string at the bridge is secured by 2 ??? (whats that called? the one u tighten witht he allen key?) and the part u insert in the saddles is like so short

Oh man! that does not look good. Did you tighten the truss rod? A LOT?
From reading your posts I would say leave the setup to a qualified guitar tech.

Re: hiya, just got my s470dx

is it very obvious? i told my granny about it, she told me she cant see the bump. i didnt touch the tension rod at all, i just got it yesterday dam

anyway i had already changed my guage to 0.09, yeah its all ready to play and abuse now, tried, but the neck area is bothering me alot. i think im going to get back to the shop to ask them what is that

I'd fix it. You dont want to snap that neck.

Re: hiya, just got my s470dx

Man dont u knwo the more caliber the more tension what were u thinking u should work with the screws in the tremolo cavity if u want to change gauges and what the heck would you want to anyway a FR guitar is for shredding not for playing rythm 0.12 are for rythm and fixed bridges. Me personaly wopuldn put anything above 0.10 on a FR guitar. I bet u ****ted ur pants I share ur pain I guess this is the kind of lesson when ur mom says dont touch that cause is hot you're gonna burn then u touch it and u say what was I thinking damnnnn!!!
