Marco, I'd like to suggest an addendum to your guide, specifically because all strings are not made equal. For instance, I use 0.0095 strings from d'Addario. Just the right balance for me of slinkyness and tone.
But the 9 spring is too soft and the 10 spring is too strong UNLESS a
specific adjustment is made:
the tremolo section which receives te spring has three grooves. The highest one is the strongest setting and the lowest one the softest, spring tensions being equal. So my 10 spring approaches a "9.5" when I set it closest to the axis.  
It's a simple physics fact that the angular
moment is weaker the closer to to the axis.
That's what I applied and that worked.
I suspect that others who might be using heavy bottom strings might have difficulty with some springs. This would be the answer.

Obviously every situation will be different. My guide covers 90% of the cases. It has to be slightly adapted to particular situations.

« Reply #34 on: November 06, 2010, 02:20:33 PM »
So I set up my tremolo (using both the manual, which wherever they have pictures they're very blurry and hard to read) and the link posted in this forum, and the trem seems to be working ok, but the bridge is nowhere near level, which as the manual states is clearly not supposed to be the case. But it also doesn't say anything anywhere about how to make the bridge be level while still doing the rest of this stuff as mentioned.

Help?

(Wasn't the world happy being rid of "W." one year ago? Hehe...)

Oh and wkcchampion, please don't use a Fender strap on a Fly, that hurts! *s*
And very nice flowery bedding/tablecloth (whatever it is) as backdrop for your Fly pictures... [:P]



Hi Marco,

Send me your email addy and I will send you a pic of a Parker strap.  Ken made a few.

Marvin

Oh I missed that typo, I'll fix it soon ;)
That Fender strap is very old, I'm proud of it! It was my first strap, since I was 6 years old, and I still keep it :D  BTW, does Parker make their own Fly straps? Never seen one.

To Lavine: the correct Italian words for "many thanks" are "grazie mille" ;)

(If an Altervista window appears, click on QUI to cess the file)

It includes the previous guide. It helps to setup the bridge, including mroe pics than the manual (which must be read anyway!)

Moderator, if u want, please make this a sticky, as it replaces the prev one.

I hope you like it... and that helps who has doubts after reading the manual
