Hey guys, I recently bought this cheapo guitar. I looked up about who makes these guitars and what they're like but all i could find was people nagging and complaining about how shit the "overlord of music" bridge is that comes with it. People were saying it was made out of recycled tin cans and the action was far too high and could not be changed. I had already bought the guitar and felt pretty annoyed finding out this but when it came i checked out the bridge and was amazed by the fact that instead of the "Overlord of Music" engraved into it that you can see in the picture it had "Licensed Under Floyd Rose Pats." :
Do you think that they may have started replacing the bridges with legit floyd roses or have they just engraved that in instead of the overlord of music engraving you can see in one of the photos here: http://www.lenkermusic.co.nz/product/438/electric-guitar-r-hand-black-new/
How do i tell the difference between a FR copy and a licensed FR?
I'll post a picture if wanted...

Doesn't really matter, at that price it's going to be a shit bridge regardless of whether it's a licensed design or not.

well if it's licensed it'll say "licensed under floyd rose patents".

Note that in no way does that suggest the trem will actually be any good.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

most double locking trems(except for the real thing and the ibanez EP and EZ) are licensed under floyd rose patents.it doesnt mean that the bridge is going to better in anyway..it just means that it uses the basic design of a Floyd rose tremolo system

i wish my trem said rhythm in jump. and by that I mean I'm glad it doesn't.

"Overlord of music" seems positively sensible now

These cheap floating bridges should be banned and their manufacturers whipped repeatedly.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
