I'm looking at this beautiful Edwards guitar with a neck-thru and a Floyd Rose tremolo.
Now there has been a lots of discussions on how floating bridge kills sustain and how neck-thru gives better sustains than normal neck. Would these cancel out each other or the extra sustains from this type neck won't be enough to compensate for the bridge?

It's basically a exact guitar as my current hard tail ESP LTD MH-1000. If it's worth switching I will do it.

I'd go for it, purely out of playability and being neck-thru adds a lot of sustain
ohai little sig.

It's true. I just got a Jackson SL3 that's the same deal, and its sustain's much better than all of the bolt- on guitars with floyds I've tried. It doesn't have as much sustain as my Les Paul, but it's comparable.

I was a little concern about the balance between them will mess up the sustain balance of the guitar. There should be some tonal different with this kind of setup, or is it?

Floyds do not rob sustain.

Neck throughs do not sustain 'better' or worse. Just differently.

I had a bolt on Basswood axe with licenced Floyd which sustained a hell of a lot better than my neck through with OFR Kramer Stagemaster.

If you mean differently as in 'it sustains better', then yes, +1

The difference in sustain between different neck joints is minimal and barely noticeable, if at all.

A floyd will always have less sustain than a fixed bridge because it can move. That means some picking energy is wasted moving the bridge when it could have been vibrating the strings. However, it's easily compensated for with your amp.

So yes, floyds have less sustain than fixed bridges but its' nothing you can't deal with.

My necktrhough OFR guitar (on my sig) gets more sustain than any of my bolt ons, including the fixed bridge guitars. If your neckthrough is mahogany or a good sustaining wood the results should be the same.

if you think you'll use a floyd, it's worth it (assuming it's a good floyd). very slightly more sustain won't be much consolation if you need to do a dive bomb followed by some over-the-top horsey noises...

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.
