Tech Corner: Adjusting String Height on a Floyd Rose

When you set up a guitar equipped with a Floyd Rose double-locking bridge system, a number of things can go wrong, and one of them is not understanding how to properly adjust the string height (a.k.a. string action). ESP's VP of product development and highly-experienced luthier and guitar tech Todd Binder walks you through the entire process of setting up a Floyd-equipped guitar's action to that you can make the best setup for your playing style and not have to compromise your tone versus your performance.

This is the fourth and final of our Tech Corner series on Floyd Rose setup. You can see the others here:
