I got this video with some possible solutions...


I was thinking something like a kramer with a maple neck, but theyre quite hard to find where I live.

I want a maple neck, and original floyd rose that I can make go down only.

mmm, something kramer ish..

Good luck.

EDIT: Ok, I'll make a proper post. ^floyd roses go both ways. Get a vintage trem system/get an FR and only go down.

Try looking for an old Kramer (pre-gibson), you might strike lucky.

^Yeah, but they don't come stock, he might as well get another trem system.

EDIT: Watching OP's vid while posting, S series are great, though again, they have a FR style bridge.

OP, what amp you playing through?

ESP/LTD has several great gutiars that come floyd-rose equipped for under your price. Ive played these guitars and they can match any.
IMO, don't get a FR ... instead get one with decent trem system and tuners that lock the strings!
For GnR sound ... choose one with H-S-H pickups or just get a Les Paul :P
I must stop wasting time in The Pit and practice!
im buying this guitar soon unless someone can convince me otherwise


i think its one of the best out there for the price

either go for this or an s series ibanez

And I want a floyd that goes down only so that I don't have all them tuning problems...

then go with a fixed bridge and abandon your plans of a one-way Floyd

Epi Les Paul Std w/Duncans
Cry Baby From Hell
Marshall JH-1
EHX Metal Muff
MXR EVH Phase 90
Carl Martin Classic Chorus
EHX #1 Echo
Ibanez LU-20
Dunlop DCB-10
Crate V50112
Tascam US144

I think you want something like a Fat Strat or a PRS SE. With locking tuners, a Fat Strat will be pretty good with a pickup change.
