Will I lose sustain with a Floyd Rose in comparison to a string-through-tune-o-matic bridge on my guitar?

Yup.

How much? If I've managed without a FR untill now, is there any reason for me to order one if I'm not certain that I'll use it very much?

If you want the whammy bar effect without the whammy bar, get a whammy pedal. They're expensive, but not as expensive as getting a new guitar with a Floyd Rose. The Digitech RP350 is a great pedal.

I'm getting a new guitar anyway. I'm just wandering if I should put in a FR or not. It's a carvin.

If you aren't sure that you need an FR, then you shouldn't get one.

Excellent idea to get a Carvin .

congrats on choosing Carvin

You will lose alot of sustain with a Floyd. but depending what model Carvin your getting, you may not notice. The DCs are all neck-through, which adds loads of sustain compared to a bolt-on. I say get a wilkinson tremolo, you won't lose as much sustain, it stays in tune just fine (as long as your not doing Vai or Dimebag type stuff) and its alot cheaper.

I've decided to go for the CT3M, M22SD(b) and C22J(n), Ruby Red Stain, and these speccs:
- BC - Black Chrome Plated Hardware
- SL - Dunlop Straploks
- 406 - Cream and black coils and black bezel
- STF - stainless steel frets, med-jumbo .048" tall x .103" wide
- BMF - Birdseye maple fingerboard with black dot inlays
- I would really like to have FSR- Ruby Red Stain colour.
- HC11- Form-fitted ABS plastic hardshell guitar case

i agree.

basically, you'll probably lose a bit of sustain with a floyd. if you use a floyd a lot, this probably won't concern you, and most of the better floyds have pretty good sustain.

it really depends what you want and need it for. if your next guitar is to be an 80's shred guitar, you might want a floyd, etc.

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.
