Meron ka bang locking nut? that usually fixes it. better get one kung wala. Sinetup ko pa yung trem spring and claws nung guitar ko(I have a floating floyd rose type style tremolo). about the higher fret prob, truss rod adjustment.. better bring it to a guitar serviceman.. i attempted to adjust it myself, lalo lang nagkagulo :lol:

sounds like an intonation problem.

a locking nut is good.... if you have a locking trem. otherwise, stay away from it.

Definitely an intonation problem and maybe one or more of your machine heads slips as you use the whammy.  How do you anchor your strings to the heads?  Or maybe your strings are new and haven't been broken in properly?  Bring your axe to a luthier to make sure.

The strings:

a. bind on to the nut (poorly cut nut, ugly nut material, rough strings)

b. slip on the saddles (rough saddles, poorly made strings)

c. slip on the post (poorly made tuners, faulty installation of strings, loose tuner bushings)

The tremolo:

a. isn't adjusted right (lifts after a bend)

b. is worn out

mga sirs, ask ko lang din, kasi pag napuputulan ako ng string, nawawala na sa tono yung gitara ko. Is there a problem with the bridge?  :?

Yup. But if you have a locking nut, hindi mawawala sa tono yun.

actually, naging problem ko na to before...
bro, check your strings, maybe you need a new set for replacement... kadalasan pag luma na yung strings, nawawala na talaga to sa tono
and secondary na yung intonation ng guitar mo, kung sakaling nagpalit ka na ng strings and still ganito parin yung problema, you need to bring your guitar to a luthier

Palagay ka ng Tremsetter...

The Tremsetter will automatically bring your guitar back to its "zero" or starting position. On a regular floating bridge, your tremolo relies on the your string tension pulling against the springs in the back of your guitar.

Its a delicate balance and if one side is just a little out of balance, your guitar will be out of tune. The Tremsetter overrides this precarious balancing situation and brings your tremolo back to the exact "in-tune" position.  :-D

Yun nga lang kulang ka parin ng isang string ....  :-D dala ka na din ng tools when gigging for emergency purposes...  :-D

aahhh... no. Even with a locking nut, a floating bridge will go out of tune if you break a string. Why? The system works on the principle of having the cumulative string tension equally countered by the cumulative spring tension, to keep the bridge floating parallel to the guitar body. If a string breaks then: cumulative string tension < cumulative spring tension = bridge will pull down towards the body = out of tune.

Natural yan sa lahat ng guitar. Mas obvious lang sa floyd rose. Naturally kasi, hinihila ng strings yung neck ng guitar kaya nagbebend ito slightly. Kaya pag naputol ang isang string, naglo-loose siya ng konti. Affected na lahat ng strings. Di lang napapansin kadalasan 2 perfectionist lang ako.  :-P

dpat kasi kapag nagtono ka ng gitara n nka floating trem lalo na floyd dapt i dive mo muna sya tpos tono mo ulit.... kapg pinull mo ung whammy medyo mawawala na sa tono lalo na kapg walang lubricant ung stud at knives mo... ung knives sya ung my contact sa stud mo.. suggestion lang nabasa ko lang effective naman eh..
lagyan nyo ng chapstick na lip balm...
tapos kapag my gig kayo magdala kayo ng allen wrench at string winder sa bulsa habang tumutugtog para mas mabilis kayo magadjust ng string kapag napatid...

nawawala talaga sa tono floating trem kapag napatiran kasi nagiiba na ng tension ung spring at strings, pero pagadjust mo nung string na napatid bumabalik naman sya sa tono kahit di ka na magretune kasi bumabalik ung tension nung spring fine tuning na lang.. kaya kapag nakafloating trem ka mahirap magpalit ng strings dapat parehing gauge lahat kapag nagiba ka ng gauge iaadjust mo nanaman ung tension ng spring.. sana makatulong toh...

isa pa nga pala kapag nagtono ng gitara na nakafloating trem dapat direcho sya nagiiba kasi ng tono kapag nagpalit ka ng position.. gudluck bro...
