    I've never used a Floyd rose bridge before . I'm buying a guitar with a floyd rose

    Can you please please explain how to adjust the string height (action)

    Is it like the vintage bridge? Using an Alan
    Wrench and lower the saddles the same way?

    Also how do you change strings?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    niormally gutiars use licensed fr bridges - thus theyre not identical but only very similar -

    diff. guitar companies will thus ahve diff. ways - when u buy ur guitar - ull get a manual with it - itll tell u in detail how to adjust action..

    but yes - itll be with a wrench

    I bought it from this stupid shop called Pro Music in Chennai and they are not supplying any manual and they say they don
    't have any wrenches

    Please help!!!!!!

    Where do i get the wrenches ? Can you get it for me, if you live in Chennai?

    I'm stuck with a guitar and no Alan Wrench or anything

    get that 'army knife' thingy. The original VICTORINOX is super expensive. Look for a remake or something. Super useful!

    My VICTORINOX has like 12 different heads.
