Jackson JS1r Dinky. I want a real floyd because my current one keeps going out of tune.

Do you have a licensed floyd on it currently? I don't know what model yours is and I'm too lazy to look it up.

The JS1R has a vintage style trem if I remember correctly. So unless you want it non-recessed or you can route the space for the trem, more than it's worth. I'd save up and buy a better guitar with a trem.

The OFR itself with go for $200+. A tech will probably ask for at least $100 to install it, probably more.

Buy a new guitar putting a $250 OFR on a $150 guitar is doesn't make sense and it's just not a good use of your money...

A better way to spend your money is on this

Get a ESP LTD M-100 for $300 American.

Basswood body flame maple top and it comes with a Floyd Rose Special. This is a real Floyd Rose made by ping in Korea

This little LTD super strat is IMHO one of if not the best entry level guitar on the market.

Go to the nearest guitar center and play one you'll be suprised how much better it than the JS1 you have.

Get a guitar with an FR in it already. Someone said it above, but LTD makes very cheap guitars with pretty decent FR's in them. Anything from their 50/100 line.

Of course, if you have a bigger budget, then just let us know what it is, and we can help you find a good guitar for you.


TS a LTD m-50 doesn't have a Floyd Rose it's about the same quality as the JS1 you already have.

What kind of budget do you have? Bigger budget more options especially if you are willing to go used.

They have to route your body- paint will chip.

Better off buying a new guitar. Seriously.

Or don't use your trem.

Or try to use techniques to help- graphite in the nut, bridge saddles and winding your strings in the tuning keys in the way that locks them.

Putting an FR in a non-FR guitar is never a financially viable option, unless the guitar is extremely sentimental, and you are positive you want to.

It's a very in depth process, and is very expensive. It would cost at the very least twice as much as your guitar costs new.
