    There's no issue with putting one of these on there, with that PRS tremolo, is there? I am talking about the D-Tuna.

    a D-tuner on a floating trem is not all that useful; as soon as you flip it the other 5 strings go out of tune slightly.

    you could put a block in the trem to where it didn't float anymore, then the D-tuner would do its job.

    (the d tuna is the EVH thing that attaches to floyd trems, totally different deal, and also useless unless the trem is set for dive-only.)

    Not a fan of D-Tunas. Is the Tremolo floating though? It's kinda like a strat style tremolo.

    PRS' factory set-up used to be for the trem to float a bit. However - and it's been about 5 years since I last had a PRS with a trem - they set them up with the base plate closer to parallel to the body top. In that respect the setup is more like a modern 2-post trem than a vintage trem even though the PRS trem is a 6-screw design.

    Sounds like the OP means a Hipshot D-tuner, a D-tuna won't fit on anything but a Floyd Rose.

    You'll need to set your trem to dive only to get any real use out of the D-tuner.
