On the Jackson website, the bridge is listed as "Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 Tremolo". I was wondering...since it doesn't say "Licensed" does that mean its an original?

Edit: I would also like to know the quality of the "Floyd Rose® Licensed Jackson® Low Profile JT580 LP Double Locking 2-Point Tremolo". It comes on the MG series guitars and some of the pro series models.

Edit Again: Is the licensed one directly replaceable with an OFR? or is there routing required?

I'd assume the soloist would have an OFR

mg serious is meh, licensed. works but can be iffy

and no.
I'm not racist.

I hate everyone the same.

If it doesnt say official it isnt an OFR.

just a LFR. Nothing too fancy

Jackson usually dont need routing for swaps.

Floyd Rose don't only make OFR's. So it might not be lisenced, but also may not be an OFR. Infact i'm sure it's not an OFR.

Duh, I feel stupid now I mean better like "Is the trem in the Jackson SL3 Soloist better then the trem in the MG series guitars?" errrrrrrrrrr wait...better question.

Is the trem in the Jackson SL3 as good as an OFR or is it junk and needing replaced down the road?

^ yeah, i was confused by it too.

Can you try them? I wasn't too impressed with the new JT580LP (better than the old ones), but a lot of guys over at HC say it's great...

I dunno.

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.

I'll see about going to the shops this week to see if they have any. Hopefully they do, seeing as most of them are Jackson dealers.

Eh i wouldnt trust HC too much either.

The trem on the Sl3 should be like a step up from a LFR but a step down from an OFR Similar to a floyd rose 2

I get what you're saying.

If it does go to crap though is an OFR a drop-in replacement?

It should. Jackson guitars usually have a direct swap for OFR from ther tremolos
