Just adjusted two A tuning forks I had to A#/Bb for my trumpet. Just got my guitar chromatic tuning meter and used my bench grinder to take equal amounts off the tines' ends a bit at a time until the frequency was right. It's not rocket science or even heavy engineering. Just do it a bit at a time. It wasn't touchy either, it's not critically minute amounts ...

now interestingly enough & oddly enough 8's will work on an Acoustic Guitar because with less tension the top will vibrate more.

This squiggly fret guitar in this video below has perfect notes and that is what is needed.

According to this video, it's a minor pentatonic scale, but one different to the one we call minor pentatonic. It would be composed of these intervals : 1 2 b3 5 b6 In A A B C E F

The web page on Scale and Temperament by Justin Senryū contains extensive discussion of Japanese temperaments and tunings, including relationships to 12-TET. In particular, he writes (about his own adaptation of the system) The following chart shows Akebono Chōshi in Adjusted 12TET, and in Senryū I by the number of cents difference from standard 12TET, and ...

Other descriptions of the Akebono scale disagree with this characterization. The two I saw (Internet perusal) described that Akebono as a hexatonic scale (consisting of six notes). The given notes were C-D-Eb-G-A; amusing in that no sixth note is listed. There is a picture of what's labeled a drum but consists of some metal bars fixed at one end; the notes ...

It is common to put something under the back of the Floyd Rose bridge to fight the springs while changing strings. I wouldn't go as far as "one string at a time" -- I'm a hardtail guy who has changed strings on a Floyd once, so maybe I'm wrong -- but using a block of wood or a paperback to keep the bridge from going too far should help, especially ...

As @ToddWilcox says, that is an advertised feature of the Steinberger Transtrem, but for the life of me, that looks like a Kahler bridge, which was Betamax to the Floyd Rose's VHS in the 80s. They still exist but didn't win. The midi pickup and tuning control remind me of a Strat that Fender released years ago, but I don't think that has much to do with the ...
