    Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Tremolo Bridge with R2 Nut:

    Lots more sustain than the Schecter LFR it replaced due to worn out saddles on the LFR. More sustain than on my guitar with a TOM bridge. Finer threads on studs for finer action adjustments than the LFR (not compatible with LFR bushings, but the new bushings were a direct replacement). Tight fit in pocket compared to the LFR. Nut was a direct replacement for the LFR, too. String retainer much more substantial than LFR part. Was going to use a Schaller LFR, but found out those have 12" radius, whereas OFR has 14" radius, matching the fretboard.

    Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Tremolo Bridge with R2 Nut:

    Classify myself as an Experienced Musician since I am retired from the Professional Musician classification, if the guitars and basses that I have built in recent years, are not considered a profession. This unit went on a Lacewood body with a Tobacco Burst nitrocellular paint finish, and a Bubinga neck sporting an Ebony fretboard,with 6150 frets. This Floyd unit has an R-2 FR nut, and a set of Sperzel Locking Tuners on the headstock. It has a distinctive look with the Satin Finish, and makes the high polish on the body, that provides the figuring of the wood with an excellent appearance, even though it had very good pattern in the first place. DiMarzio Pickups in an HSS configuration with DiAddario strings create an original sound. The Floyd Rose brings it all together. I have used both Schaller and Original FR units, and I personally find the FR to function somewhat better. It seems to fit in the cavity, and stay in place better.

      Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Tremolo Bridge with R2 Nut:

      Yeah, it's a pain to change strings. Yeah, it kills some tone and sustain. Yeah, it stinks to set intonation. Yeah, it's not very adult in general. But when you need a tremolo to do what this thing does, this is the best choice, for a number of reasons. The main reason being that there are numerous parts, gizmos, and upgrades readily available to combat many of its inherent pitfalls. If you need to create tremolo mayhem, this is the one! Contrary to what I'll select at the end of this review however, I would NOT recommend this to my friends. I like my friends, lol.

          Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Tremolo Bridge with R2 Nut:

          There's just nothing like the feel and sound of an OFR...period. I don't know if it's the German steel or what, but this trem just can't be replicated. I swapped the licensed version from my EBMM Axis, and it warmed up the tone. This is the best trem on the market!
