    Hello everyone.

    It might sound silly but I got back my RG1527 from my luthier. I told him to block the tremolo (Edge pro 7), and my question is, do I tune my guitar the same way as if the trem was not blocked ? (i've only had 1 FR guitar so i'm not really familiar with their tuning).


    Thanks

    not you dont have to you can tune from low to high you may just have to do it twice like any other guitar. I have mine with a tremolo stopper inside with the springs tight because i dont use the trem. works for me. You can even use the normal tuners but i use the fine tuners.

    So if I unlock the screws above the nut and then tune my guitar with the "normal tuner" (the ones on the headstock) then lock the screws, it will be a way to tune without deregulate the bridge and other things ?

    Yes. Tune with the tuners on the headstock and then, after locking the lock nut, use the fine tuners (the ones on the bridge) to tweak the tuning as needed.
