Buy what you prefer:

Tremolo: not easy to setup the first time, but guitar will stay in tune forever
Fixed bridge: very easy to setup, but guitar can lose tuning easier

Ya... a good FR will stay in tune for a long time and provides additional dynamics to your playing via the whammy bar.

Dynamics generally refer to volumes, and whammy bars don't change volumes. Some friendly advice.

And to the TS; I think it would be safer for you, since you don't know how to deal with an FR, to get the fixed bridge.

if you want to add more to your playing with the whammy, get the FR. if you're okay witout it, get the fixed. i however would say get the Fr, even if you don't end up using the whammy at all, it'll sty in tune forever

You know what I meant.

Well, you can pay the $100 extra for the RR5FR which is basically a neck-through RR3 and a better trem. Or get the RR5 FR with fancy gold hardware, and spend $75 on locking tuners. Either pay $1275 for a fixed bridge forever in-tune guitar with gold hardware. Or $1300 for a forever in-tune guitar with traditional black hardware and a difficult (yet comfy imo) Floyd Rose.

I've owned both and I have to agree with the rest of the people here, it all comes down to whether you want the trem or not, I did, that's why I have my RR5FR.
