Do you think the Licenced Floyd Rose tremolo system is complete crap?
I dont think so, i mean i know it isnt the original thing, but it still works, and most of the time it doesnt go out of tune. If it does, its usually just a little bit, unless you like take the bar down to the body of the guitar or something. Re-tuning isnt really a big deal either, just like any other guitar without a locking system, you're gonna have to do it.

It depends entirely on which liscensed FR you are talking about. Ibanez has done wonders with thr FR liscense, while some of them are utter crap. It varies a lot.

Yeah, i got an Esp Ltd M-207, and it went out of tune today a little more than usual. I think its because its not perfectly parallel to the body. I didnt have the patience to fix it tonight at 2:00 a.m.

Agreed. If anything Ibanez improved on the design with the Edge series. There are so many companies making trems under the FR license, some are fine and some are utter garbage. Generally I try to stick with either Edge trems or Original's but I have a Burny with a licensed FR that's outstanding.

my jackson has one and i cant say that i have any problems with it, although when i do have to tune my guitar it does tend to be a bitch, lock the nuts and the whole thing goes sharp...ahh well, gotta sacrifice some things for greatness :p

Good floyds: original, schaller, Gotoh, Ibanez (edge pro, edge, lo-pro edge, zr). Vigier and Musicman are probably ok too, though I hear some bad things about the quality of the studs on the musicman ones too. Kahler are good too, though they have a slightly different design.

Not all licensed are bad, if you know the ones which are good.

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 have carved my maximum tuning time from about 20 minutes down to about 5 at the most. It just takes practice and the whole FR thing isnt so bad at all.
