      Comments about Floyd Rose Original Limited 1984 Tremolo System with R3 Nut:

      This is like an upgraded version of what they now call "original". It has a much more substantial brass bridge block that adds warmth and sustain. To buy an original and an upgrade bridge block you've spent as much as this and still have to install it. Besides, it looks cool with the brass fine tuners and I actually like the old style screw/pivots vs. the ones they have now.

          Comments about Floyd Rose Original Limited 1984 Tremolo System with R3 Nut:

          replaced my jackson dinky stock floyd rose. my old one went out of tune too fast and felt awful with cheap metal. put this floyd in with ease and the first few minutes diveboming and doing bends left me astonished. sustain greatly improved with the brass block. pinch harmonics are easier. stays in tune. after 2 hours of abusing this ,and i mean abusing, this thing, it bearly went out of tune on the top 2 strings. rest of strings stayed in tune to perfection. stock ''licenced'' floyd rose on lower end guitars are horrible. if you have some extra money, please upgrade to this. all parts are good metal, my magnet pickup up every piece of it. this retro floyd is amazing.

            Wonderful product ! Brass Block thru... for greater transfer and sound resonance ! Great Quality, sturdy, strong,... stays in-tune. Unless you are a luthier, or great with wood working, Do not attempt to do what I have done... I took a fixed tremolo guitar, and of course modified it to install the full floating Original Floyd Rose tremolo. I couldn't be any more happier with the results of the install, and my new Floyd Rose tremolo.

              Comments about Floyd Rose Original Limited 1984 Tremolo System with R3 Nut:

              Replaced a "Licenced by FR" bridge on my '94ish Steve Stevens Signature SS80 Washburn. Feels and sounds better than when it was new 24 years ago. The Washburn has a R2 neck, so i did not use the R3 locknut that came with the bridge. The original R2 locknut is German made, so quality is the same as the R3. Very pleased with this purchase.

                Comments about Floyd Rose Original Limited 1984 Tremolo System with R3 Nut:

                I got this because I am building a guitar and I was already spending a lot and I wanted to give this a try. The only other Floyd I have besides a lisenced fastloader is a special in my epi les Paul. The weight difference is big. The solid brass block definitely helps tone and sustain, and you really don't need to upgrade that. There are no downsides. The extra money for this over the original Floyd rose is definitely worth it.
