This isn't necessarily a bad thing, I'm just curious...
It's been 20 years since I played a floyd so I may be off a little, but I don't remember my Jackson floyd being this stiff. It's very stiff, the trem arm hits the body before I can loosen the strings and it's hard to push down that far. I remember with my Jackson I could effortlessly dive until the strings were completely loose flapping around and sticking to the pickups magnet pull. This feels completely different. What am I doing wrong?
Is the trem level or tipped forward, you may need more tension on your springs to level it. If the trem is level maybe the angle of the whammy bar needs to be bent out a little.
It sits dead flat. I'm thinking about shimming the neck so I can raise the bridge a little. The reason I'm thinking about doing that is because the strings are really close to the body and I prefer more space, but maybe by doing that I might kill 2 birds with one stone. Still, it seems stiff and I don't remember my jackson floyd being this stiff. Maybe I just don't remember correctly.
Man, this thing sustains for days, I forgot how cool that is.
Bend the angle of the bar, problem fixed.
I don't think that's it man..
I'd love to hear the thing, upload a video?
Love the black hardware on that! And that comes from an old school, try chrome first guy.
I couldn't be happier with how it came out, so glad I didn't settle for that Charvel. I still have some tweaking to do but it already plays and sounds great!
This is more like the true color..
