    Hello....newbie from the UK here.....

    Hi Paul, where in the uk are you?
    Its probably worth watching a few videos on YouTube on the ins and outs of floyd roses, its little things like not over tightening the Allen bolts at the nut and bridge, centring the fine tuners before tuning up so you have maximum adjustment when the bit is locked.
    Ive gone off floyds after trying the standard musicman trem, I think its better and more responsive. That said, a floyd can be a lot of fun.
    Im sure any questions youve got will be answered on here anyway

    Same here, though I do cut the ball end off. I've always put the plain end through the tuning peg and run it back to the Floyd and snipped the ball end with the excess.
