GUIDE - How to keep the Trem in PERFECT tune
« on: August 27, 2009, 02:57:09 PM »
The guide made by me with the help of 908ssp, Simonlock and Fastredponycar has just been published.

It shows a procedure to setup the trem in order to use it like a Floyd rose - that is, stay in perfect tune with any use and abuse, no matter what.

The Manuals page: http://www.parkerguitars.com/Downloads/manuals.html

Direct PDF download: http://www.parkerguitars.com/images/stories/manuals/Fly_trem_guide.pdf

Cheers and enjoy!

Nice guide but what's even more amazing is that Parker put it on their web site. [:0]

Yeah - wow - it's actually on Parker's site - nice job.

My only suggestion is that it would be greatly improved with some photos and/or a link to some video demo (posted on YouTube or somewhere).

Bummer. It looks like the links at the top of the page are not good anymore. [:(]

It wasn't working for me yesterday. Now it works! OK, never mind. [:I]

EDIT: When I first got my Deluxe, I thought getting the bridge set up was going to be complicated because of that flat spring, but it was actually one of the quickest and easiest set ups I have ever done - about ten times faster than getting a Floyd Rose type system to my liking!
