Licensed Floyd Roses stay in tune just fine if they are setup properly. The biggest thing to worry about on a LFR is the knife edge wearing out. It's not going to happen anytime soon mind you (as long as you take care of it), just sooner than an OFR would.

If you don't know how to setup a guitar with a Floyd then take it to your nearest guitar tech and just pay to have him to do it for you. As long as you make sure it's done right you shouldn't have any problems.

The construction ideas of an LFR are EXACTLY the same as an OFR. Double locking 2 point trems.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

at a GC or other big chain store... ~$50 and up

at a smaller store or a local tech working for himself... ~$20-50.

doing it yourself for the first time after learning how from the internet... priceless.

theres somethings you cant buy, for everything else, theres mastercard.


but it will take you about an hour the first time you do it. just read how to do it, read again, go to another site and read 2 more times, watch a few (3+) videos, and then dig in. worse comes to worse, come back here with a detailed explanation and pics of what went wrong.

i would go with option C. its the cheapest and most logical. but, understand why you chose B. but when you take it to the tech, ask if you can watch what he does and ask questions so you can learn what does what. most of them will have no problem with you watchin.
