How do you adjust the intonation on a floating bridge?
To adjust floating bridge intonation on a guitar, first check the 12th-fret harmonic and the fretted 12th-fret tuning of both E strings (high and low). If properly intonated, the fretted and harmonic 12-fret pitches of both E strings will agree, with none of them being sharp or flat.

Why does my Floyd Rose click?
Koshman, it’s not exactly a creaking noise, it is literally a clicking noise. Pull off the back plate that covers the trem cavity. Play around with the trem to see if you see anything catching on anything. It could be a spring hitting something or such.
Can Floyd Rose be tuned down?
Yes – you can tune it lower – I’m assuming you mean going for drop C or B or whatever. (1) You will need to set up the Floyd Rose again – but you can do it yourself if you are patient. (2) Heavier strings will help – if you lower the tuning, light strings will flap around.

How are the strings fixed on a Floyd Rose bridge?

What’s the best way to set up Floyd Rose?
If the bridge is level, but the strings are sharp: loosen the claw and re-tune. If the strings are in tune, but the bridge is high: tighten the claw and re-tune.

What should spring tension be on Floyd Rose?
If the bridge plate is level, then the spring tension is perfectly balanced with that of the string tension and no adjustment at the trem olo claw is needed. If the bridge is lifting up and away from the body, then the 2 screws of the tremolo claw need to be screwed in to add spring tension and help bring the bridge down to its proper level.
What to do if your Floyd Rose guitar goes out of tune?
A small metal block then clamps down on the string, held tight by the string retainer screw. If the string slips, it will not be able to return to the proper position when releasing the whammy bar, and your guitar will be out of tune. Once the strings are locked, the headstock tuners become inactive.
