The OFR is an Official/Original Floyd Rose.

The 1000 uses lower quality materials, I think.

The FR 1000 are Korean made, as opposed to the OFRs being made in America. They're most likely not as good, be it materials or craftsmanship. The only foreign FR trem that I'd trust, are the Schaller ones, which are made in Germany. Schaller makes very high quality products, at least in my mind, and they're not "licensed" FR trems. That means that they are manufactured by them, for FR, and meet the specs of the OFR. The difference between them is the Schaller has a lower profile.

Anyway, long story short, FR 1000 is Korean, and OFR is American.
