You're beating a dead horse man. There's no wrong way as long as the end result gets you what you want... For Christ sake man. This guy uses an allen wrench...and coins... Rich said to use cardboard. Different items utilized the same way. You know the concept of how to do it now so just do it.
but he said to never block the trem level which is what this guy did in the video, no?
All this stuff is more annoying than I thought it would be when I bought this guitar, and this bridge edge has to be the most bothersome of them Floyd rose style bridges.
I like the guitar and all, but I don't find myself using the bar as much as I thought I would before I got the guitar. Just like a sustainer, is a gimmick too.
All these Floyd bridges are all different and have to be set up differently, at different angles, different everything.
Anything you do to these guitars basically messes up the setup. Put bigger gauge string, messes up the setup, remove all strings at once, messes it up, drop the tuning, messes it up.
I want to learn but is so confusing, I can't learn without a proper video or someone teaching me how to do it in person where I can see how its done. I always disliked writeups and instructions online, maybe because English is my second language. I have trouble understanding these writeups. I understand the words and sentences, but not how to translate it into action in real life, because most people do not explain step by step what to do.
Like I said before, they explain things from their reality, which for them is a piece of cake, they skip or simplify steps and confuse the person reading it.
Guitar techs wouldn't even bother to teach even if you pay them, heck they couldn't even set my bridge right, I, a noob, had to do it.
So whatever you do, when you change the strings, the setup is going to mess up, you're gonna have to adjust the claw screws anyway, what's the point.
It's an annoying system where you have to be constantly adjusting, there is no permanency.
I ask myself why did I buy a guitar with this bothersome system when all I do is play at home.
I'm never going to learn how to do this with some writeups I don't know maybe I'm stupid but I taught myself to speak English and to do a lot of other things like modding my car by just watching others. In the car modding world, I have never been able to learn how to do anything by just reading those half ass writeups on forums.
I learned how to mod my car by watching videos or someone else teach me how to do it in front of me.
These floyd systems are even more complicated and annoying that modding your car imo because is constant adjusting, moving, is a balance of many parts, whereas in the car world, is mainly installing things in and out, no constant adjusting, the same applies to handyman work, for example
You learn how to install stuff in the handyman world and in 99% of cases, once installed is permanent, no continous adjusting no balancing, nothing
