weird that they put a licensed trem on a 1200ish euro guitar then, while the RR24 is 1125 euros with a OFR..

if they put an OFR on a guitar, they would clearly list it with Original Floyd Rose. If it doesn't say that, it's not an OFR, no matter how many crazy numbers or letters they put after it, it must say Original Floyd Rose. if they listed that guitar had an OFR but got sent out with that LFR, that's false advertisement and Jackson can get sued over that.

Hi, in other post, there was nice discussion, but here is the strange thing.

There is believing that ORF is just one and made by Ping. From Schaller are considered as those are licensed ones, but the best ones - probably better than those originals.

FRT - 1000-5000 (or maybe FRT -Oxxxx) should be just Korean made ORF I mean original spec and material, although the saddles are from zinc (wtf). Those are mainly for OEM. You will find them only in guitars and no separated or sold alone. If so, then those are ripped from the guitar.

Those tremolos are used in higher grate guitars like BC Rich Warbeast WMD (yeah, that one I own), but also Jackson RR24. Hell, those guitars should be far more than mid or low end right, right. I would be really surprised, if the Jackson would install some crap into their better, if not the best factory made guitars. People are swearing those are pretty same quality as real Original Floyd Roses. Also, if you look to concrete web of guitar manufacturer, you will see mosty Original Floyd Rose Double Locking Tremolo there.

Look here:

http://jacksonguitars.com/products/specSheet.php?product=2913024899 Here you actually see that FRT Oxxxx

or

http://www.bcrich.com/warbeast_wmd.asp#

It was said clearly. they use the term ORIGINAL FLOYD ROSE. So it should not be crap. They also have written in front Floyd Rose.

Those one uses lightly beveled side of upper side of saddle near to the fine tuners. ORF is straght to the end.

The other situation is with Chinese FR. yeah those are Floyd Rose Special and they should be from steal, not just hardened or so and they have smaller sustain block, I think. People do not like them much, but some are satisfied. Are those better than other licensed ones? As JT580 or others? Well, I do not know. But I would stay away from them. I think that FRS does not use the ORF term, but who knows? Technical name is FRT - S1000-5000. They have written in front Floyd Rose Special.

In very strange world we live in. So many things and so many confusion, right?

Good info for people that don't know, but you probably shouldn't have bumped a 2 year old thread for it.

Hi

These are Korean made OFR's instead of German made OFR's. Are they better? Definatly not. Are they as good as? Time will point that out. The people at Floyd Rose claim that it is made to the specs of the German made OFR.
