I have a Kramer Striker 211 and it is very easy to tune. First, you unlock the nut lock with you Allen Key. Then you tune the guitar like you normally would (tune the pegs). Lock the nut. Your guitar should be out of tune now. Use the fine-tuning knobs at the base of your guitar to tune it again. The reason for this type of tuning is the awesome Floyd Rose tremolo. It may be a pain to tune, but you cannot go wrong with Floyd Rose

Not sure for your model but, it should go like this: loosen the nut lock (s) (the bar or individual locking screws that go(es) over the strings to hold them in place). The lock(s) should be located behind the nut, near the tuners on the headstock. set the micro adjust knobs at each bender bridge position to midrange tune the strings normally. If the strings are new, do a little pre-bending on whichever strings usually loosen on you to get the play out. retune the guitar. tighten the nut lock(s) (they may be individual or a group) snuggly, but not so much as to strip the screw or crush the string. The idea is to hold it in place, not make it break. retune the guitar using the micro tuners. If one has to be set so tight or loose that tuning is impossible, reset it to midrange, open its lock and *retune the string, then retighten and adjust micro tuner. *If a bar lock, adjust all microtuners to mid range before loosening the bar, retighten after tuning, then fine tune with micro tuners.
