SOURCE: Schecter Hellraiser C-1 question

Hi,

Yes, you can install a Floyd Rose later, but it will cost you more to buy one later and install than if you were to purchase the Schecter with it already installed. A Floyd Rose bridge with trem can cost between $40.00 for a used one, to $80.00, or even higher, depending on the features you want. If you need it installed for you, you are looking at another $50.00 to $100.00 potentially.

If you are unable to purchase the one without the Floyd Rose bridge because the cost is a bit out of your reach, don't worry. Schecter C-1 guitars are well made and sound very nice, and you would still have a really nice guitar. I have owned two Schecters , and still kick myself for having sold them to "upgrade" to a Gibson Les Paul Standard. Just because it reads Gibson on the headstock, doesn't necessarily mean it's a better guitar. To prove that, check out reviews on Harmony Central sometime (www.harmony-central.com) and see how many people are displeased with their Gibsons, and how many are pleased with their Schecters.

But you don't have to worry about installation of a FL bridge later, as they fit exactly where the standard bridge and stop tailpiece are fitted.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: floyd rose is causing a fret buzz

Raise the saddles on the FR to help take away the fret buzz. Check the neck for curve. If the neck has a VERY slight bow on the fretboard side the strings will be able to vibrate better without buzz. Also might want to step up to a heavier gauge string set if you play in lower tunings.

HOW DO I TUNE A KRAMER GUITAR


Without seeing your guitar, I'm going to assume the "tightening lugs" you're reffering to are the string locks on the nut. On a guitar with a "floyd rose" style tremolo system, the strings pass through a clamping system at the nut before going to the normal tuning keys. This clamping system "lugs" must be loosened then the guitar is tuned as it normally would, then the lugs are tightened to lock the strings in place. These clamps are not part of the tuning mechanism, but instead lock down the strings after they have been tuned by the keys. After all that, one would fine tune the guitar at the bridge rather than at the keys. A more complete explaination is found here-

How to change strings on vendetta


the strings on most floyd rose tremelo systems require a small allen wrench(hex head) to loosen the pressure on the bolts holding the **** end of the string in. should be easy access from the top of the guitar. hold the guitar up to your face, **** end first and look up the body towards the neck. there should be six different screw ends visible. loosen counter clockwise. you have to trim the ball end off of a new set with wire cutters in order to replace.

What size strings? and how to adjust pickups and bridge adjustments. can i find an owners manual online?


String gauge is a personal preference. I'll ask you this: what is your playing style? I see your picture and its a Jackson DK2M. One thing to remember is that the Floyd Rose usually needs adjusted with a different string gauge. With a Floyd, I recommend replacing one string at a time unless you are cleaning the neck with steel wool. If you are taking all the strings off at once and changing them all at once and not one after another, put a towel under the back end of the Floyd Rose so it does not tilt back and mar the finish. Jackson usually installs 9's on their guitars, but this is too light in my opinion.

The pickups...there is a screw on each end of the pickup to adjust the pickups up and down. Raiseing them will get you more output but more noise and feedback. Lowering them will get you a more mellow sound. I keep mine no less than 3/16 to 1/8" from the strings.

Bridge adjustment...Floyd Rose trems are tricky little animals. They have small allen screws to raise the saddles up and down. Raise the bridge just enough to keep the strings from buzzing excessively and as long as they don't make a buzzing sound thru you amp, its nothing to worry about.

Send me a message if you have any more questions. With a Floyd Rose, it would not hurt to go consult your favorite guitar shop or a friend with a Floyd equipt guitar to see them work on them.
