I grew up in 80's & 90's and that is when I started playing guitar. my first guitar was a fender strat and the trem bar on those guitars is basically worthless or you had better wait till the very end of the song to do that dive bomb on the wammy bar. anyway the double locking floyd rose system and all the licensed versions out there were a must in the era if you were a student of the shreders. until a little band called nirvana came along and the days of the shreding solos and use of the wammy bar just went. but I was so happy to find out that you could get the real floyd rose original again because it is just the best version out there in my opinion. so back to 1990 when I first started playing guitar, me and my dad were avid headbangers ball viewers and it didnt take long to realize that my strat needed a locking trem of some kind. and the only way you could get an original floyd that I remember was you had to find a kramer or something that all ready had one on it. so I settled for a liscened version made buy WD if my memory serves correct. Which was decent enough. I could finally start trying to emulate all my heros that influenced my ( EVH, Kirk Hammett, Dime, etc...) inital playing and solo learning.
But to get to the point, I later discovered the gibson les paul and became a pretty much LP or nothing kind of guy once I went more alternaTIVE and less heavy metal. But I still had my 1983 charvel model A, single humbucker, single volume control, (so Eddie VH) and the need for a locking trem. well I finally found that you could acctually get a real floyd rose original, pricey but worth it. so I got one and put it on there, And really if you have the need to go with a floyd rose type, I can tell you I have yet to try out or play a " LIC. UNDER FLOYD ROSE PAT." design that could compare to the original real deal. just the quality and playability of the real thing has no comparison. they use top quality materials and plus EVH uses them....can't go wrong there..

I ordered this Floyd Rose to replace a FR Special on an import Soloist. I ordered from Musicians Friend because the tremolo was priced less than anywhere else I could find.
When the tremolo arrived, I opened the box and found the tremolo had a defective D-string saddle assembly.

The saddle was missing its brass retainer plate in the bottom, which allowed the lock-block to sink too low into the saddle causing the screw to apply pressure to the corner of the lock-block (instead of the round recess) which caused the screw to bust off a corner of the lock block.

Again, this was straight out of the box. This is how the tremolo arrived to me. I discovered these issues when I attempted to install the tremolo.

I emailed Floyd Rose with pictures and they corrected the issue.

I'm unsure if this unit was tampered with at Musicians Friend or if it left the factory this way, but it was dissatisfying either way. This is the only purchase I've ever made from Musicians Friend, and will likely be the last.

Vintage Copper Original FLoyd Rose

By Richard Linane

from Connecticut

Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Tremolo Bridge with R3 Nut:

I purchased one of these temolos just after Christmas and it came with the wrong arm (right handed temolo; left handed arm). I verified it against the diagrams on the floyed rose website. MF offered to let me return it in exchange for another. Great customer service, but the second one came to me the same way. I tried contacting Floyd Rose but they did not answer my emails. I contacted Schaller directly and they are going to send me the new tremolo arm. It is a nice finish on the unit but it does cost a bit more for that finish. If I had it to do over again, I would not pay the extra cost for the hassel of having to contact Schaller for the arm.

    Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Tremolo Bridge with R3 Nut:

    Very awesome Floyd.. Stays in tune even after crazy dive bombs. Easy to intonate but it does take a while to set up. After proper setup the rest is a breeze. This will beat any licensed Floyd on EVERYTHING. Buy one!

        If you want the best, this is it. Get it properly set up and intunated and there's nothing like it. Improves tone and sustain. Also stays in tune way better than the special or any other licenced tremlo. Comes with a 37mm sustain block, so make sure you check the size of the block your lookig to replace. Different size blocks can be ordered from Floyd Roses' website. I've put them in all my guitars and highly recomend the original over the Floyd Rose special.

        Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Tremolo Bridge with R3 Nut:

        This tremolo system is awesome. My old tremolo couldn't keep my guitar in tune for even an hour, but this one is the exact opposite. My guitar stays in tune for weeks even after heavy usage. I can do all the dive bombs and squeals I want now!
        The only minor problem is that the nut isn't a perfect fit with my guitar. Its not that noticeable, though.

                  The Original Foyd Rose is still the best whammy system available. Once adapted to it's purpose and functions it is easy to set up and tune, and any amount of extra time or effort taken during the learning curve is made up in performance. Simply put, it's a system that works and has been proven so over the decades. I have been using them for over thirty years now without failure. Beware of imitations. Get the German made Original Floyd Rose locking bridge system for years of reliability, rocking, and dive bombing to your hearts content.
