So... I just noticed when recording he tunes his Floyd Rose (which he shouldn't do after every take if set up properly anyway) with the spring screws on the back
His reason being "all strings are a little flat so it's easier to just adjust the springs"...
Well, he's kinda right. But doesn't this mess with the over-all setup?! I mean there is no reason why his $3500 ESP should go out of tune that often. My Warmoth build with with OFR holds tune for quite a few takes, but I'm aware that I have to replace that stupid OFR some day (it shouldn't be worn after 2-3 years, but it is!)
So does anybody else do this? Is this a really a "good" way of tuning a floyd?
Yes. During setup. What your friend is doing makes logical sense.
