Are there any LP style guitars which feature a strat trem or a floating bridge? I'm asking just out of curiosity. I've seen them with Floyds, but none other.

So yeah, you seen any? Post the make and/or model, if you can

Cheers!

i've seen LTD's and ESP's with floating trems. i think the correct model is the EC, but i'm not entirely sure.

i had a Gibson LP studio standard which was only made for a couple of years in the 80s that came with a factory installed kahler trem.

Gibson Les Paul Axcess, ESP/LTD Eclipse series, some Agiles, Shecter Solo 6 (I think), Fernandez Ravelle (deluxe, I think), and some others...

I would recommend an ESP LTD EC-1000 FR, Unless you're looking for the Les Paul sound, not shape.

Dont you love people who don't read actual post?

But besides Bigsby's and Floyds I've never seen any other trem on a Gibson LP before If it counts I do believe the PRS singlecut has a strat-like trem (whatever the PRS trem is called XD)

As others have said, Bigsby and Floyd bridges are.. well, not common, but not that rare either on LPs.

But if you're loking for non-Floyd types which are still floating, or a Strat style vibrato, you're a bit screwed. The Epi Special-II Gt is the only one I've ever seen with such a bridge and that's awful. Warmoth could make you a bolt-on LP body routed for a Strat style vibrato (or any other type of vibrato you wanted), but that means putting the guitar together yourself, and Warmoth LPs never have quite the same tone as a traditional Gibson LP even if you match the specs.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Yeah, what with the bolt on neck and all. It's a bit too snappy for traditional LP tone.

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.

Discontinued but PRS Singlecut Trem had a 2 point strat trem on them. Lovely guitars too I wish I could buy one now.

As mentioned earlier a Vibrola will probably do the trick.

Yes, but I'm guessing they're quite hard to find for curved tops like Les Pauls, and if you do, they aren't very functional, cause they really don't stay in tune easy.

I'd maybe go with a Stetsbar, expensive, but they're alright. You can go here and you can see some Les Pauls.

Stetsbars are also a good option, and probably better for a carved top as well. I have a Vibrola on my Gibson V and it works like a charm, but I have no experience with them on a Les Paul.

You kinda get good ones and bad ones I suppose, I've seen some which stay in tune quite well, but I've played others which just don't.
