cant make out the name. what kind, is that a floyd, and what are the pickups?

Yeah, he mentioned a floyd, but I don't still know, what that means. The pickups are wilkinsons, he just said. Any more ideas?

I have a Vintage guitar. I'm gonna advise you not to get the guitar.

The Liscenced Floyd Rose on mine is terrible TERRIBLE quality. I've taken it to 3 different people to get it set up right, 'cause it wasn't set up at all right when I bought it, the action has to be set really high to prevent string buzz, the 24th fret had to be hammered in again because the string kept buzzing on it. But if you DO get it, change the pickups before you plug in. My guitar has virtually no treble/clarity at all, it just sounds muddy no matter what amp I use.

Just find out if you can try it out before you buy it.

Yes, I can try it. But as I'm a beginner (and developing fast!) still, I might not be able to tell, whether it's worth the buy or not.

Most LFRs aren't too good, I hear. I haven't played one, but from all the people moaning about them all the time, I picked up the idea.

It seems like people don't like the instrument that much. I will definitely go and try it, but I will be tuned very negatively to it.
#18
If the LFR is OK, it should be a quality instrument - I've tried a few Vintage guitars out and ended up buying one because each guitar I have played of theirs has been of really high quality and really nice to play. For the price of the guitars, the Wilkinson pickups in them are good and responsive as well. I would offer him less than $250 for it though, purely because it's not hugely expensive new - maybe offer $200 or $220, kinda depends how used it is though.

I have that Guitar!!

and tbh, it wasn't especially nice when I got it, but i've done a fair bit of modding with a dremel and it plays and sounds very nice now. Putting .10 gauge strings on is necessary to keep the neck in shape although this requires some heavy adjustment of the LFR. I've had mine for about 1.5 yr. and the tremolo is starting to wear quite a bit, but it stays in tune well. Thinking about replacing the trem soon with a better FR.

My mate has a Vinatge Metalaxxe Wraith (I think), and it's horrible. nasty action, cheap tacky feel to the finish, weird neck, cheap feel, cheap electronics, unstable trem.

What's a dremel/tremel? I don't think I'm a person to modify my guitar that much. I can barely manage changing the strings.
#23
If you aren't that experienced with working on guitars, i'd recommend you stay away from any guitar with a floating bridge such as a Floyd Rose.

If you can't change strings now then you don't need a Floyd Rose, especially not a junk one like on that guitar.

Any cheap guitar with a LFR should be avoided. Vintage stuff is generally good though. Their strat style trem is pretty good.
#26
Not for $250. my brother sold his to a shop earlier this year and got £20 (~$40) but I think he was fleeced at that. It's quite a nice guitar IMO apart from the floyd, even then my brother didn't take care of his one properly.

They're cheap beginner guitars - and not really worth it for beginners.

How much of a pain is it?
Or have you managed to tame it? You modded it - that should improve it.
