Floyds aren't hard to tune to begin with. Doing intonation is a huge pain in the ass, but that is a very rare thing. Really, putting Sperzels on a Floyd guitar is a waste. They're really nice machines, but the whole purpose of them is lost as soon as your lock down your nut. The do make changing strings easier, but you still have to cut the balls off and everything else so it doesn't matter. On my fixed bridge guitar they help a ton, though. I only have to wind the peg about half a turn on the thicker strings to get it up to 440, and it rarely goes out. My Floyd guitars still hold tuning better, though. They barely ever go out more than a few cents, and I play pretty hard.
