Floyd Rose Push-In Style Tremolo Arm | Floyd Rose Floyd Rose Push-In Style Tremolo Arm

Dave and I have been keeping an eye on this for a while, and over the weekend these came back in stock. I've got two on the way - belatedly, I realized I own three OFR-equipped guitars, so I'll probably be doing another order at some point. :lol:

I'm excited to try these - they appear to essentially be based on the same principal as the Gotoh arm holder, which is the best design I've used.

Jesus. :lol: I don't know if I'm jealous of, or terrified of, your collection, bro. :lol:

Hmm. If it works as well as the push-in arm on the Wilkinson VS-100, I might have to give this a try. I'm used to the collared Floyd arms, but they are maddeningly inconsistent.

Just ordered one to replace the collared arm on my LTD Elite. That gets rid of the last of the non-Gotoh-style trems in my collection :yesway:

Also, *** makes me feel a lot better about my own instrumental excesses :lol:

We still have to get together so you can check out the FRX install on my LP Studio. It has the push-in arm, so you try it at the same time. It's very smooth, with none of the notchiness that the collared arms all seem to have these days. You also don't have to crank it down as far as it will go to keep the arm from staying put.

It looks more or less like the same design, and that's hands down my favorite trem arm.

I want one of these for my OFR, if just to try out both arms to see which I prefer.

Then I could give the extra one to noodles, to correct an imbalance in the universe. :idea:

These arrived last night. I was, however, drunk, from meeting a friend for drinks after work, so I did not attempt to install them. :yesway:

I actually report to a Jim, who DOES have a corner office. :lol: He's never there, though, he's always on the trading desk, so he might catch on. :drew:

Real quick review - it's basically a Gotoh-style arm collar (rubber sleeve around the bar, allen key to increase pressure on the sleeve and in turn increase or decrease rotational resistance), except unlike the Gotoh, which also screws in, this is a true pop-in style arm, meaning you can quickly yank it out if you want to use the thing to play slide or something.

It's fucking awesome, and I can't recall the last time I spent $13 on something that made me this happy. It's the only thing I ever wanted from a Floyd, fixed. :wub:

Hmm would these work on an orginal EDGE trem or just Floyds?
I'm actually not sure... The OFR arm can be retrofitted to an Edge, right? If so, I'd think they probably should be...
