It's probably pretty decent, I used to have a guitar with a licensed Floyd Rose and it stayed in tune perfectly.

Considering the Floyd is blocked, it should stay in tune forever and last longer than the frets... Make sure it's set up properly, factories don't do such a hot job.
I love all 5 (sold a couple) of my Carvin X-100b's.

So the fact it's a licensed Floyd isn't an issue? Since i haven't read any but negative feedbacks about them so far, till now that is.

I have a strat with an original Floyd, and one with a liscensed bridge. While the original feels mor crisp and the finish has held up better, it's knife edges have some worn spots and I ended up having to block the bridge.....The liscensed version still performs perfectly. I think the steel quality varies with each production run on any given model, so much for recycling huh?

I was wondering, can't i get a luthier to replace the nut?:p Would that fix the problem?

Sorry for doing this but...bump xD
Please don't hurt me *hides*
#15
^ Wtf ?

No. You need it to already have the locking nut, otherwise you have to destroy the current nut and do a whole lot of **** to it.

I wouldn't buy a guitar EVER without trying it first

I never lock the nut on any of my FR equipped guitars. Locking tuners and a smooth nut (TusQ, graphite, roller, etc.) can give a guitar enough tuning stability.


As for fitting a locking nut on a guitar without one, it's possible, but it'll have to be placed behind the existing nut.

As an example, look at this Kahler:

Hmm, I hope that Floyd Rose isn't going to thin that strat's tone out. Also, it doesn't have a locking nut by the looks of things? You kinda need that.
