I have to tune my Guitar quite often to Drop-D, and back to standard E. Due to a free swinging Floyd Rose Tremolo, the Tension changes with that, and all the other strings have to be adjused aswell, thats quite time consume, because every the tension lowering is kind of a chain reaction.
Thats what these Backboxes are for, they block the FR at the back, so it won't go down any further.
you'll nedd 2psc M4x35 (at least, i used M4x50), 2pcs M4 nuts, 2psc wood screw (I used 3x15)
attach as the picture shows, at standard Tuning. If there are still problems, thighten the spings of the Tremolo, or adjust with the M4 Screws oft the backbox.
Works perfectly in my Ibanez
Caution, Tremolo works only in one direction after you attached this, im fine with it cause i do standard bendings for upper pitches. Maybe there could be made a spring loaded Backbox (like original ones) to work around.
