hey im looking at getting the Jackson ke3 kelly and it has a licensed f/rose in it. I have never played with a floyd before so just wondering if they are good enough to stay in tune. I live in australia so guitars are expensive the kelly is retailed at $1050 and any guitar with a OFR in it is out of my budget.

I've got a licensed in my Jackson DK-2, and I can't say I like it very much. Although, I haven't had extensive experience with OFR's or Ibanez Edge's.

their a pain when you have to change tunings or string size, but as long as you have a locking nut you'll do fine for staying in tune.

OFR's are way better.

But I have a KE-3 myself, and I can say that it's pretty good for it's price. Although I blocked my trem now, I got bored of it.

Jackson LFR are pretty reliable these days now.


Just takes work and some know-how. I need new strings before I set mine up again. The bridge is all messed.

I bought my Jackson DR7-T about 6 months ago and it has a LFR. About the third day of playing it, my trem arm just fell off. I wasn't using it at the time It just randomly fell off in the middle of playing something. It wasn't like I could just screw it back on either, the whole thing just fell apart. I got it fixed and it's been fine since. I think I was screwing the trem arm on to tight. As far as staying in tune I have tested it out by abusing the strings a little bit with some big bends and dive bombs and the tuning didn't suffer at all.

Point being: they are delicate, don't over-stress the screws. They stay in tune very well through all kinds of abuse. So to ultimately answer your question, yes they are of good quality, but a noob like myself can manage to destroy it pretty easily.
