99. 9% sure that pic of EVH is from before Floyds even had fine tuners. LOL
I read or saw a video interview of Eddie saying that the first version of the Floyd had no Fine Tuners and he was kinda perplexed and told Rose he need something to fine tune it, gave the idea and then later he learned that the Rose patented the all thing as his.

I'm not sure if they were ever entirely out of production but I know they started dusting them off again, lately:

It's kinda doofy matched with a locking nut but these days with the number of guys that match a floating trem up with locking tuners, the smaller footprint and no fine tuners to nudge during palm muting, I think it's a legit option now morseo than before.

Yeah, a lot of EVH's most iconic guitars originally had the original Floyd Rose. Him and Brad Gillis complained about the guitar going out of whack with the clamp so Floyd fixed it.

Alex Lifeson also hopped on the FR train originally, but he was smart enough to use a proper nut.

Fairly certain Lifeson got the 2nd FR trem, Eddie got the first.
