Hey everybody! Currently I have a guitar with a Licensed Floyd Rose and I want to buy a new tremolo bridge. It will be either a Schaller Floyd Rose or an Original Floyd Rose but after some research I'm not sure which one to get.

Schaller

Floyd Rose
http://www.floydrose.com/original.html

I haven't found either one being better than the other, so I ask anybody here for more imput about this; which is better? are they both just as good? what's different about each other?

Also the one I have is a low-profile version so would I have to make any modification to the guitar for the other one to fit?

well, i heard somewhere that floyd rose or schaller... idk, well i heard the original makers of the best one also made their own licensed version, which is kinda wierd... on the schaller once, it says licensed under floyd rose, and on the original one, it just says floyd rose.

some floyd rose originals models are made in germany.. the good one, and some not... the bad one... i found this out some time ago while checking out which to buy for my guitar, but i'm not whether schaller or original is better

^lolz!

edit:..well... i was looking at the schaller kit at stewmac.com.. its more expensive than the original and locking nut if you go to Carvin.com... by 40 bucks i think... it might just be they sell them at different prices though... wow... there are a lot of periods in this sentence...

Well that's the thing, everybody knows that the OFR is great but when I was researching the schaller, people say schallers are the best, or are just as good so I don't know what to get.

Does anyone have an answer to my second question?

I've heard great things about the Schaller Floyd Rose from an exceptional guitar playing expert. Go with that one/

the biggest problem is making sure it fits. it's by no means a fait accompli- the studs may be a different size, the rout may be a different size, the sustain block may be too big, etc. etc.

first things first, you need to check it'll fit- if you email schaller you should be able to get routing templates, there are routing templates on floydrose.com, and don't forget about the gotoh one (ge1996t) either, there are routing templates for it on wdmusic.

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.

Actually, Gotoh makes the best floyds from what I've heard. The Schecter/Gotoh Floyd on the Stiletto series that I tried felt like it was suspended by rubber bands as opposed to springs (which is good for me, cuz it was soooooo smooth and it didn't fight me), and it pops right back to tune like THAT.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

^ that's a pretty cool video, actually, nice find (despite the terrible keyboard music in it ). only thing wrong (and it's small) is that gotoh makes the "good" ibanez trems, and gotoh's own version of the floyd (much like schaller's own-brand version of the OFR) is really good too.

I have an '86 Zion Super Strat w/ a Schaller, and a couple of others w/ Original Floyds, BOTH are in the same league.

actually on further inspection, you lose one point for the dude wearing shorts and pointing his leg towards the camera at all times. EDIT: actually, i'm not sure about what he's saying at the end. the edge is meant to be great, equal if not better to the edge pro, and i've read plenty of well-respected people saying that it doesn't matter if you turn the studs under string tension. but by and large, it was pretty good.
