    Hi all,

    First of all, I just spent 2-3 hours reading about how to properly setup a 6 screws tremolo bridge. There is so many different ways that it is confusing.

    My guitar is a Suhr and I have tuning instability after having it tuned up by 2 different technician. This is way I'm here. I guess I should learn how to properly do it instead of paying until I find a good luthier!

    So, do you guys have precise instruction that I could find somewhere that are reliable? Some say that the Frudua video are the best, some say it is wrong... I guess it depends of the bridge type?

    So, mine is a Gotoh 510 6 screws. Is there something specific about it?

    My tuning instability are both when I'm using the trem and when I'm bending.

    Suhr recommend to be able to bend the string with the trem a half step up.

    My intend is really to get it setup to Suhr spec. I'm almost there, but not yet!

    Thanks,

    Snooze
