Is it really worth it?

I have around £400 to spend on a new guitar; I listen to metal/hardcore and i'm just wondering is it worth me getting a Floyd Rose trem guitar?
I like to change my tunings a lot but I listen to things like Children of Bodom, Trivium which does use the floyd rose quite abit.

What do you recon UG?

well floyd is all personal preference...really unless your just obsessed with doing dive bombs and dimebag squeals...there is no real need for one

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.

although if you change tunings alot might me a good idea to get a hard tail guitar or use your current guitar for changing tunings

Ah okay, thanks.

I'd never want a guitar without a locking trem now I've had one. It's become part of my playing. But lots of great guitarists make do without one, so it's all personal preference.

A floyd rose is really fun... I don't use it often, but it's a great thing.
But it sucks if you have only one guitar and want to change your tuning often!

A floyd is great even with occasional use. If you like to change tunings often, get a tremol-no for the floyd.
