I HATE stringing guitars. I'm surprised I don't cry every time I have to change a string. Strings get out of tune easily on just about every guitar. My advice is to retune it every time you get it out (duh).

Yea i agree, the head looks stupid without the tuners and i dont think theres many companies which make speedloader strings yet. But i aint a very big fan of bc riches anyway,

lock down your trem, if you dont know how, ask the local guitar shop....you just tighten the screws in the back by the springs. do this while the guitar has no strings. also, use as heavy a gauge string as your machine head will take, sometimes people get the pegholes routes to fit bass strings in to fill in as the low E strings.

Yeah, Floyds are nice, but you gotta set it up for one tuning and one guage of strings and that's all you use it for. If you want the guage or the tuning to change, you must readjust the bridge. I would advise against blocking the tremolo, sure it makes things easier but it only allows you to dive, kinda defeats the purpose of having one. Take it to the shop if you don't know what you're doing, if you're competant with a scredriver you can adjust the springs yourself. See section 3 in the post linked here, it will tell you how to maintain your floyd.

I don't really care for B.C. Rich, weight too damn heavy. Their sound is okay, but to me the only reason people like them is their look. The warlock is VERY overrated! But I guess if I had to choose, I would pick the mockingbird or the ironbird, nuff said.
