So, I saw this picture of a floyd in the "official floyd rose tuning something thread kitty pizza" thread.



Notice that where the bar would normally screw in, there is a pretty little button there.

When I pull my bar out, it looks like this



The first picture has a cover of some sort, and it makes the floyd look finished, as if it was made that way (maybe it was, im not sure). The second one, you see a gaping hole in the floyd, as well as the track for the housing to screw on. Is there just a little button to screw on top of that to make it look finished or am I sol?

I have a warlock with a floyd rose, but when I bought it from a friend it didn't have that little screw on thing.

the only way i could see someone getting it to look that good, is welding it shut and refinishing it. you could take that part out and take it to a hardware or auto parts store and see if you can find a plug for it. it wont look as good as that one, but it would look ok
if i did have all my gear in my sig, id have to change it weekly

Definitely nothing normal and I can't really make out what exactly they've used to cover the arm hole. Also, what's the point in having a Floyd without the bar in it......oh yeah, some people like to block them and still have the advantage of fine tuners.......ONLY this person has also screwed the fine tuners all the way in so there goes that reason....

it might be a "plug" that someone makes and sells. i doubt floyd would make a bridge that didnt have provisions for a bar. i bet that trem is blocked.

edit: didnt see the fine tuners were all the way in. so there goes my theory on them having it to keep in tune better
