    Top mount or recessed Floyd?

    Okay guys what should I go with on my Warmoth 80's build a top mount floyd or recessed? Leaning towards top mount for period correctness.

    I would go with recessed, but that's me.

    If you're doing an '80s tribute guitar, the only way it should be recessed is with a hammer and a chisel.

    What everyone else has said, you can do a pullup route and still be period correct though. A lot of 80s jacksons have those.

    ^ What he said.....

    If you were going to be TRUE to the period...You'd also have those cheap ass screws for trem anchors Man, it's weird going back to top mount trems...Everything is so damn high up from the body! I played on of those EVH's and it totally bummed me out that it was a top mount trem...But, if you're wanting to be authentic to the period, then do what ya gotta do I guess.
