To start off, the guitar is in tune and I know how to set up a Floyd Rose.

Whenever I play my Razorback, the springs inside it start vibrating, which causes feedback through the pickups. For the people who think that wouldn't cause feedback, tap on your guitar next time it's plugged into an amp. Anyways it's not that bad at lower volumes but playing live it poses some problems. Especially during solo work. Am I missing something in the setup or is it something unavoidable with a Floyd Rose?

My Kimaxe and the Jackson I have both have Floyds in them and they vibrate a little, but not like the Razorback does. I'm guessing they're not as sensitive since the pickups aren't as hot

Could it be that it is a licensed floyd rose?? I hear they're crap and always cause some sort of problem....

I heard stuffing your cavity with tissue paper will help reduce the feedback. I think Steve Vai does it.

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

The only notable difference between a LFR and an OFR is the base of the FR itself. The OFRs are case-hardened at the pivot points whereas the LFR aren't. Plus the Kimaxe has an OFR in it

This might be your best bet. It is exactly what Vai does...

Get some rubber tubing and place them inside the barrels of each spring.

That's actually a great idea! I wonder if you could put some shrink tubing on the springs?

Makes sense...
Seems a little bit of an overkill though haha
Scaling your idea down.... I wonder if regular ol' Rubber Cement would kill the vibration? It'd be easy to take off if you needed to also


And I take it you're a Jackson Rhoads fan?

humm, seems a bit of a problem, i have had very little experience with FR systems, but i am looking to get a guitar with an FR soon. I think the tissue paper idea may work, good luck with it
