LP + Floating Bridge?

Are there any LP style guitars which feature a strat trem or a floating bridge? I'm asking just out of curiosity. I've seen them with Floyds, but none other.

So yeah, you seen any? Post the make and/or model, if you can

Cheers!

i've seen LTD's and ESP's with floating trems. i think the correct model is the EC, but i'm not entirely sure.

Gibson Les Paul Axcess, ESP/LTD Eclipse series, some Agiles, Shecter Solo 6 (I think), Fernandez Ravelle (deluxe, I think), and some others...

I would recommend an ESP LTD EC-1000 FR, Unless you're looking for the Les Paul sound, not shape.

But besides Bigsby's and Floyds I've never seen any other trem on a Gibson LP before If it counts I do believe the PRS singlecut has a strat-like trem (whatever the PRS trem is called XD)

As others have said, Bigsby and Floyd bridges are.. well, not common, but not that rare either on LPs.

But if you're loking for non-Floyd types which are still floating, or a Strat style vibrato, you're a bit screwed. The Epi Special-II Gt is the only one I've ever seen with such a bridge and that's awful. Warmoth could make you a bolt-on LP body routed for a Strat style vibrato (or any other type of vibrato you wanted), but that means putting the guitar together yourself, and Warmoth LPs never have quite the same tone as a traditional Gibson LP even if you match the specs.

Yeah, what with the bolt on neck and all. It's a bit too snappy for traditional LP tone.

As mentioned earlier a Vibrola will probably do the trick.

Yes, but I'm guessing they're quite hard to find for curved tops like Les Pauls, and if you do, they aren't very functional, cause they really don't stay in tune easy.

I'd maybe go with a Stetsbar, expensive, but they're alright. You can go here and you can see some Les Pauls.

Stetsbars are also a good option, and probably better for a carved top as well. I have a Vibrola on my Gibson V and it works like a charm, but I have no experience with them on a Les Paul.

You kinda get good ones and bad ones I suppose, I've seen some which stay in tune quite well, but I've played others which just don't.
