its better to have a tremelo and never use it than to have a guitar with out one and want to use it.

He is absolutely right. If you dont know anything about a float rose, know that its on a floating piece of metal...well its 'floating' by tension.

So you tighten one string, and it pulls the trem towards you, which then lowers all the other strings...

Its very annoying to tune, even when you have the hang of it. I got a licenced floyd rose (yea a cheapo, but a pain non the less) and I wish I didnt for my first guitar, but I sitl love my guitar, lol

Yea... i usually tune it to drop C and drop D

you sir are an idiotic mushroom

no seriously exactly the OPPOSITE of that... if your not gonna use a fr, then NEVER EVER get one.. :

Go out of tune twice as fast
HELL to restring
Hassle to tune/detune/retune

Seriously, the only reason to have something is if your gonna use it. I mean would you buy a Sugar Cane Juicing machine??!? no i didn't think so

yea now that i think about it my bad for that, but if it was a new floyd rose they have the tremelo stop in it making the bridge fixed, that way he could leave the clamps open and could down tune all he wanted

One of the advantages of a floating trem (a good one, of course) is the absolutly amazing tuning stability. Foo'

^ troo dat


w/ floyd you can still have it in a low tuning like drop C, but everytime you change the tuning to something else, you'll have to readjust the bridge. Unless you change tunings often or don't use the trem much, I would go for the FR.

i think thats only in the speedloader, or some model other than the original, which the FR comes in...and it all depends on whether or not you absolutley need/want an FR\
Go get your shovel.

Basically, if you plan on using the tremelo then by all means get the FR, but if you don't think you will/ don't care, then you probably shouldn't.
