they are nice if you need them, and can be a major hindrance if you do not. They can also give you major tuning problems if you don't have them setup correctly

I have several guitars with different Floyd versions, & I've not had any real trouble with them, but like Robb said, you have to know how to set them up right to stay in tune & feel balanced. On one guitar, I blocked the bridge so it can only go down. You can't pull it up to make notes go sharp. For me, that works best to keep it in tune, because I play fairly aggressively & rest the heel of my right hand on the bridge a lot.
I enjoy the extra expressive freedom you get by having a usable tremolo.

Personally i am not a fan. For me they are just far to fussy. I constanly change tunings and I just don't like to deal with them. BUt as it has been said. Once they are set up right they are great as long as you don't mess with it.

Floyds and alternate tunings are a perfect excuse to have another guitar!!

I couldn't stand the regular string changes I gp through and the Floyd. Now I am strictly string through. It is soooo much easier. Plus I let my fingers do the work

I run three guitars for gigging. One of them has a Floyd (Schaller). I use it on songs where I need a trem, the rest of the time I use a fixed bridge. As trems go, it's very nice. Very stable, nice to use - but they aint no fixed bridge.


The survey rabbits on about having to retension the trem when you change strings. Is that talking about adjusting the trem balance with the spring adjusters? If so, wtf? If you change gauge you may have to adjust it but otherwise wtf?
Am I understanding that wrong?

Actually called Mark!
