I have heard a bunch of people who prefer different floating trems and I would like to know what UG thinks is the best for their guitar. It would be cool if you gave a little explanation with your vote, just for the hell of it.

How can an orgy be 'Nazi-style'? What did he stop halfway through and incinerate a jew?

Honestly: Nothing beats the Original.

Sure I dig the Edge and ZR's, and the Gotoh's and Kahler's..

but the feel of the original is unbeatable. Just the right amount of resistance, and I don't really dig low-profile floyds

Original Edge, Edge Pro, Lo-Pro, ZR and Double Edge; they're all great.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

I really dig the Kahler trem. I find them far superior to the OFR and the Edge I tried.

Though the OFR stays intune better WHILE playing with bending and stuff, I really like to play a Kahler. They all got their pro's and con's.

Never tried anything but OFR, don't really need to either. Keeps the tuning and you can do all the cool whammy tricks without any problem.

I wouldn't really have much of a problem with any of those, to be honest... not too familiar with the kahler, though.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I'm gonna say the OFR beats the Edge. Not because of quality, but because the fucking Edge arm holders always come lose dammit. You can adjust the tension quite easily on an OFR. I'd say they hold tune equally well.

Edge and Lo-Pro Edge that is.

OFR > Edge Pro = ZR.

Isnt the Kahler the one thats just mounted on the front of the guitar and doesnt need any routing? If so thats the one I like the most.

to all those who said the ZR, with the zero point system engaged the bridge isnt full floating is it?


I see this question all the time, but all it is is some weird urban myth. Here's a thing that explains the use of the ZPS (thanks to Pifty):

I would like to try a Kahler, but I would also like to hear how it differs from an OFR or Ibanez Edge. I have a lot of experience with both of those trems.
