  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Looking at a Jackson that has a Floyd Rose Special on it. I'd prefer to get a Pro Series that has a Floyd Rose 1000, but the price difference in the guitars is pretty huge. I'm not much of a trem guy, so I don't know much other than the "Licensed Floyd Rose" in my old RG470 wouldn't stay in tune...
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Looking for suggestions on guitars that have a Floyd Rose and a thicker neck. I really prefer my Gibson necks over anything else, but it seems to be quite difficult to find something with a similar neck profile that also has an FR on it, while being under $1k. I've looked at the FRX systems...

    Any advise on installing a Floyd Rose locking nut on a new build? I've only ever used typical nuts (bone, graphite, plastic, etc.) In most cases, I can file it down and use a feeler gauge as a "safe edge" filing down until the nut slots are perfect. Seems like it would be tough to do that...

    I've got most of the parts kicking around to put together a beater RG, but I'm short a trem, and was wondering if I could get away with something cheap if I'm just going to have it permanently blocked? The body is routed for an Edge Pro, so suggestions of something cheap and easy to get would...

    ...if you like the recessed variety, this looks pretty cool: Our own Mr. Crooks is using one of these to stabilize his Floyd to drop to D on that 7 string Rhoads he doesn't post enough pictures of...

    I really should have checked this before veneering the guitar, but it looks like the string lock screws on my Gotoh Floyd are slightly too long my Jackson's trem cavity: I found these on Ebay but I'm not sure if they'll work because the the portion that locks the string in the saddles is a...

    Ordered one of these last night. I've been looking for something that does the same thing as "The Key" on my Schaller/JT-590 style bridges for fucking ever. Suppose this is a relatively new product. Haven't seen it before. Ibanez has a similar tool that looks awesome, but it's only designed for...

    My 80s Kramer has a floyd rose thats fairly rusty and doesnt hold tuning well anymore. Does anybody here have a decent used one they are willing to unload?
  10. General Music Discussion
    Love this album, been spinning in a lot these past 5-6 months. This track always cracks me up though. It's like Floyd Rose hired them for a 4 minute ad. The guitar parts on this record rule, but this is a little too over the top, even for me.

    (AKA Floyd appreciation thread*) You can have your stoptails, hipshots and evertunes, but a guitar without a floyd is just not as fun, a guitar without a floyd is like a burger without cheese, sure, burger tastes good, but it could just be so much better. Personally, every single guitar I've...

    So, the BCRich I have, the locking nut on that had pads that worked on the old style 10mm ibanez 7string nuts. SO, what nut should I look for, as I need 2 pads. Anyone know? Are there jackson ones that are smaller?
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've seen these for sale in a few places. They essentially turn your FR bar into an Ibanez Edge kinda thing, which I've always liked the feel of. Are they worth it or is it better to just grab a Schaller bar?

    I cannot for the life of me get this Randy Rhoads Jackson V tuned to drop C# with 13-56s on this god forsaken Floyd Rose bridge - Can someone please help me do this.

    Pics first, nigglings later. 1989 Charvel 550XL in Midnight Blue Not much backstory. I've been talking old Jacksons and Charvels lately with a friend and started GASing for one of these, and the right one popped up at the right price. Haven't played it a ton yet. Shipped with a...
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Forgive the complete n00b question, but I've never actually tried this. If you have a floyd blocked so it's essentially a hard tail, there's not really a need to have a locking nut per say - can you take off the locking nut pads and use the floyd nut (sans the locking pads) just like a normal...
