  I have absolutely no problems with my tuning, Can you explain your problem in a little more detail?  It sounds like your Floyd rose springs are not balanced correctly against your string tension.

when I play a bit, I have to give even some strings with their wheel but some wheels are now at their peak; and this, one week after the setting of the guitar.

Are you sure that this isn't just the strings stretching... this is only to be expected - for any Floyd Rose (double locking) system you need to regularly reset the locked position at the headstock:

  1. Loosen the locks at the headstock end
  2. Reset the Bridge tuners so they are in a neutral position
  3. Tune Guitar
  4. Tighten locks at Headstock 

Now you will have a reasonable range of adjustment at the Bridge tuners again

Thank you for your answers.
The guitar is in the luthier.
But I will follow your advice.
Sorry for my English, I use the Google translator ...

Yeah that sounds like either string stretch or the springs aren't balanced correctly.  Can you see if the Floyd is parallel or tilited vs the guitar body?  This is the tricky thing about Floyd Rose systems.  However once you get them set up correctly they stay that way.  I have had my VARIAX hold tune with the Floyd rose for 4 months at a time with active gigging (I use Elixirs).  Also make sure you use the same guage strings when you swap out.

Merci pour votre réponse.
Je regarderai lorsque j'aurai récupéré ma guitare. Mais j'espère que le luthier aura réglé le problème.
