Here's a dumb question. I am getting a pre made neck off warmoth, and it gives you the option for the Floyd rose locking nut. The exact term they use is "R4 Flyd Prep,Mtng Hls". I have no idea what that means, so if someone could fill me in on the abbreviations there, and also, is it worth the extra $45 I am getting a Floyd Rose for sure, but do I NEED that extra $45 thing? I need the locking nut, but I know one comes with the Floyd rose, and now I am confused. lol

looks like floyd prep mounting holes. so i would say they predrill the holes you need to mount the floyd locking nut. you probably need it.

R-4 = 1-11/16" Nut-Width Wide
Flyd Prep,Mtng Hls = milling and drilling the neck to accommodate the locking nut.

Just the prep work, they don't give you the nut.

ok, thanks. And for the sake of not making another thread, here is another question. The body I want to make only has a 5-way switch available, but I am only using 2 humbuckers, and not coil splitting or whatever. Is it possible to wire a 5 way switch to be a 3-way switch? Where the neck/middle and bridge/middle positions just dont do anything?

You could use a tele style 3-way. Looks exactly the same on the outside as a strat 5-way.

Wire either one, just like a tele.
If you use the 5-way, you'll get

Ok yeah, that works. I prefer the 3 way switch personally, but I also prefer the Strat style of switch. On my LP, I tend to accidently switch pick ups mid song all the time lol
