    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...

    I'm sure a lot of you know this guy by now, he seems to be gaining popularity fast, and rightly so, he's great. Basically just cranks plexis all day long. Anyway, this is depressing but hey we all knew it...

    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?

    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.

    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?

    So it the JT-580 Takeuchi something that should be replaced for the OFR kinda like the whole Lo-TRS vs. OFR for Ibanez RG 7420s?

    Ltd. Ed. Richie Faulkner Flying-V Custom Outfit I'm always happy when a short scale guitar gets a Floyd. There just aren't that many. This looks sexual. For personal preference I wouldn't have the massive double-sided pickguard or the EMG's, but fuck it, it ain't my sig! This thing looks rad...

    Young keyboard bitcher Rocka going nuts in old thread on Warmoth forum! Just look at him go caps for hours straight :lol: Trying to tame my damn Floyd (SOLVED!!!)

    How could THIS leave the factory like this? I just recieved this nut in the mail and it's somewhat arching on one edge! It's not much, but I saw it right away! I dont trust this at all! There's two options: 1. File it down (with risk of doing more damage) 2. Return it Floyd Rose should...

    What are your guys methods for a complete restring and balance. I just restringed and the closest i can get the bridge to balance is still shifting up a little with too much tension

    I finally got the package from Floyd Rose and oh yeah!!! The push-in arm with Gotoh Floyd-style hex tension screw is fucking brilliant. I have had Original Floyd Rose for 5 years and I've always had to lock the thumbwheel down several times when I play. And with years it has gotten worse and...

    Long story short, I installed a Gotoh Floyd on my M-1000, using the original Floyd studs. Then I took it off, because I liked the Floyd more. Mind you, the Floyd had a push-in style arm upgrade, which makes it just as precise and fluttery as anything else. Also, the Gotoh was installed on the...

    I've struck out on this in a couple other forums, including a Dean one. So I'll give it a shot here. This Dean is a 2011. I know earlier ones (2008-2010 at least) have Licensed Floyd Rose. I know newer ones have Floyd Rose Specials. Mine has this one. Totally void of visible identification. Odd?

    Hey guys - This trem is in a SoCal green slime. The owner says the OE trem was replaced with a German Floyd. If it's an actual Floyd, it looks like the Hot Rod model. Can anyone give me some idea of whether this is the OE trem in the Charvel SoCal or whether it has, indeed, been upgraded...
