I want to put on some heavier strings, but don't really want to bring my guitars in to get everything reset for heavier strings. Is there a way to re-adjust it on my own???
Lord is Correct. You will probably only need to go 1/2 - 1/4 turn on each screw to get it right. Also the intonation as mentioned, but it may not even be an issueYou'll have to increase the tension on the Floyd a little when you switch to a heavier gauge set. The two wood screws that supply the tension go into the body under the back plate, they will need to be tightened until the bridge floats level again. The intonation may also change slightly.
If the Jackson Sustainiac didn't have a Floyd, I would also own zero, with all the guitars that I have. I understand that a Sustainiac might be cool with a Floyd, but the hassle involved... so frustrating.I don't own a single floating trem for this exact reason. never again. I swap on whatever I got (within reason) and i'm out the door.
Changing the strings is step 1.(I know how to do this already, this is just a question about preference) When changing guage AND tuning of strings on an FR type bridge, do you change the tuning with the original set of strings first THEN replace them with a different guage, do it vice-versa, or simultaneously?
