    So I recently picked myself up a Floyd Rose Discovery Series DST-3, which uses special "SpeedLoader" strings. These strings are basically for people who gig and break a string, and need to replace it fast. The issue I'm having is.... These strings are basically impossible to find. And I mean, the company doesn't make them and occasionally you can find a pack on eBay... It's pretty bad....

    So, I'm wanting to build this guitar and either make SpeedLoader strings, or make it so I can use regular guitar strings on it without changing out the bridge. Any suggestions? I'm considering talking the locks some Ibanez guitars have at the end of their neck and using that to lock the strings down... But will it work? I'm adding pictures, but they're having issues with the files being too big.
    EDIT: MY PICTURES ARE TOO BIG BUT THIS IS THE GUITAR http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/floyd-rose-discovery-series-dst-3-electric-guitar

    Downscale the quality? Or just crop the pictures? Or maybe cut out the irrelevant parts of the pictures to reduce their size?

    Why're you having so much trouble with something you can do in mspaint?

    Here, a much more appropriate size:

    Then don't upload it to the forums. Upload it to a third party host like imgur and embed it or paste a link here.

    .. Rather, why do you even need an image?
    Anyone that can help you probably knows what the fuck you're talking about without the visual aid, lol.

    Nice guitar. I just started learning the ukulele myself. Good luck with finding the parts you need. It looks tough to find.

    That's also an issue. Each string comes pretuned so no tuning is actually needed besides miniscule adjustments you can make on the bridge if they're a little off. And with all the time it takes to tunr a guitar.... Its pretty much impossible without converting the bridge, which I would like to avoid
    Haha extremely tough. And I was thinking about getting a ukulele, but I haven't had the time recently to go shopping for one.

    as the old sages always tells. . .

    if you can't find any. . .
    then stop looking!!!

    jokes aside: if there othing available then find an alternative,
    like looking for something that is somehow close,
    or making something on your own . . .

    That's what I tried, but it's extremely difficult. There isnt an alternative besides changing the bridge, but I don't want to do that if I don't have to. The bridge itself is worth a good $100
