Incredibly innovative system for in-tune tremolo use.
The Floyd Rose Discovery Series DST-2 Electric Guitar features a one-two punch with the innovative Floyd Rose SpeedLoader Tremolo System and a fast, comfortable maple neck with a rosewood fretboard. You'll love how it responds to every nuance of your playing, and the SpeedLoader System lets you execute the wildest trem dive bombs without losing tune! Thanks to the special strings, string changing will go from a 15 minute process to less than 4! Just drop the new specially-designed strings into the special nut and bridge receptacles and play on. Your guitar will be perfectly intonated, in tune, and ready to rock.
With a carefully crafted neck designed to be the most comfortable piece of maple and rosewood you've ever wrapped your hands around, the Floyd Rose DST-2 will quickly exceed your expectations.
All Floyd Rose pickups are made from materials selected for their high performance and superior tonal characteristics. The 2 humbuckers loaded in the DST-2 give you tons of versatility while delivering tasty sounds craved by players everywhere.
The SpeedLoader Tremolo offers all the versatility of the original Floyd Rose Tremolo with the ease and performance of the SpeedLoader System. You can still execute the most subtle tremolo or wildest dive-bombing effects and return to perfect tuning every time. It also features the TremStopper, which enables the player to block the tremolo system with a simple turn of a screw, converting the tremolo instantly to a hardtail bridge setup.
The Discovery Series Electric Guitar's SpeedLoader System eliminates the need for the use of Allen wrenches and wire cutters to change strings. The specially designed, dual bullet-end strings only take seconds to slip into the bridge and nut receptacles, and you don't have to worry about going out of tune.

I got this guitar and it was all tuned-up nice and pretty. Then I bought some strings(same as the one's that came on this guitar- 46's). After I replaced the strings with the new ones,I could not even come close to tuning it because the fine tuners only tune(go)so far, and it was not enough. So I tried another set, same deal. The strings are not manufactured precicely enough. I could maybe spend a lot of time sliding the saddles on the bridge back & forth to get the tensions close enough to tune'em in with the fine tuners, but what good would that do if the intonation's way off? This guitar is no good.
This guitar is a all around great instrument. The tremolo is choice (Floyd Authentic is WAY better than Floyd Lisensed). The Action is insane. This is an axe capable of anything! The stock pick-ups are good, but I switched mine with an Air Norton at the neck and Pearly Gates at the bridge, and now it is absolutly perfect.The only thing I can say even remotely bad would be not to recommend this to a beginner. The speedloader, although quick to restring, would most likely confuse someone new the the world of guitars.BUY THIS GUITAR!!!
This guitar is really good. The neck is thin and fast, the trem is excellent, and the basswood body sounds pretty good. This guitar only has three flaws. One, the pickups, while good, certainly could be better. Two, The fretboard is a little too flat for my taste. Three, I wished they offered it with a maple fretboard. But all in all, you cannot go wrong with this guitar.
I just got it today and took just seconds to get it tuned up and I can't believe how nice it plays. For this price I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was very surprised. The neck is fast & I happen to like the flatter fretboard. If I had to gripe about something it would be the angle of the input jack (the bar hits the cord) and the strings are twice the price of regular ones... Other than that it's a great axe for the price. It doesn't come with a manual but there is one in .pdf format on the Floyd Rose website. (To note - there is a small set screw for making larger tuning adjustments.)
The guitar for the aspiring guitar tech. The discovery DST-2 has all the sound, punch and oomph you could want.After I went to the Floyd Rose web site and read the set up instructions, I found set up to be a breeze. I've had no problems out of this beast. In fact I am continually amazed that I own a guitar that will maintain constant tuning through temperature swings as great as 60-70 degrees in one day! (Within 1-5 cents of true.)I bought a second one about a week after I got this one as a spare. I really wish they came stock with a tone knob though...
These guitars are an awesome deal. You get a great tremolo, nice pickups, and a perfect neck. What more can you ask for. It stays in tune forever. I tried for over a half hour trying to get it to go out of tune. I cant say much about about the speed loader system because I haven't changed strings yet but it looks simple enough. Pick one of these up while you still can. you cant beat it. They are crazy for selling these guitars so cheap.
Overall nice guitar. well built strat with very loud pickups(volume not noise). Course the new speedloader is awsome once you get the hang of it. Took me bout 10 minutes. Strings could be better....but if you like fender style strings your all set. The input jack is placed in an awkward place for a whammy bar but it wont limit movement too much. Quality reminds me of a fender in some way but a squire in another way. If you want an affordable axe to tinker around with, this is the one.
