    LFR for locked down bridge?

    After some advice here. Looking to get a trem for an RG7620 body, but can't really afford an OFR for the 200 the go for new, especially since it's going to be locked and practically be a fixed bridge with fine tuners. If I get a cheap LFR, and lock it down, will I notice any difference in tuning stability?

    I don't really think so.

    The only main thing I've noticed with the cheaper LFR's are that they just feel cheap and crappy, and they just don't seem to dive, pull, and flutter anywhere near something like an OFR.

    If you don't think you'll really be using it for any of that stuff, I think you would be fine with using a cheaper one as a "fixed bridge" type of deal.
