Hey I'm considering whether or not I want to get a floyd rose-equipped guitar or not. Anyone here with firsthand experience with floyds, is it really worth it to get a floyd?

Some stuff to consider, I do change tunings fairly frequently, and I've never dealt with a floyd before

I bought one and have mixed feelings about it, all i can say is make sure its what you REALLY want

If you change tunings alot, dont get a floyd. Simple as in my opinion. You'd have to set it up every time you changed the tuning

What SPBY said, if you don't change tunings too often, it's fine. Changing strings isn't that hard, but changing tunings is a bitch.

i would say that if you get a guitar with a floyd make sure its an original floyd rose and not a cheaper version. those are really the only ones i have found are worth while. you might want to get one and keep it in a tuning because they are hard to change.

it depends on what kind of music you play like its really good for divebombs and all that most floyd rose dont go out of tune usually even with the tremelo a good guitar to get is a jackson dxmg dinky 2008 model it is like 450 bucks and really good it is also hard to change tunings
