thanks in advance

do you want/need a trem? if so, get FR. do you change tunings alot, and simplicity? if so, no FR.
#3
FRs are lots of fun - until the season changes, the tuning changes, the strings change, the balance changes or the guitar gets used in circumstances that vary from the norm.

FR great fun to duck n dive - however for simplicity and ease of use I'd steer clear.

and for the record I do have a guitar with an FR trem.

If this is/will become your main guitar, I dont' recommend a Floyd. Sure they're fun to mess with, but you're only gonna use it 5% of the time you're playing

A Floyd Rose is a big hassel for something you'll never really use I think. And that's coming from someone that has 5 guitars with Floyds, 2 of them with OFRs

probably not, i'm guessing the floyd which comes on the damien isn't that great quality.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I would vote fixed atm, because I'm getting a major headache with one of my floyds right now...:/

Get the fixed bridge. Ive been playing 20 years and i still cant set up a damn trem! I havnt really tried much. All of my guitars have always been fixed bridge units until recently. I ventured out and got an RG with a floating trem! What a pain in the ass!
#9
As a rule of thumb I'd say: If you don't know whether you need a Floyd or not, you don't need one.


Really, these things are highly specialised and only serve a minority of guitarists well. The rest is better off sticking with a fixed bridge or a non-locking trem. On a side note, good Floyds usually cost 100$ at the very least, 150$ - 200$ can be considered normal. That's why I usually assume that Floyds on cheap guitars are bad, unless proven otherwise. Not saying the Schecter sucks, but I think you should be very very careful.
