About This Item

An upgrade of the Floyd Rose® system, with hardened pivot-edge inserts, fingertip arm tension adjustment, and original-style saddles with plain-end string mounting.

Includes original R2-style locking nut.

String spread
Saddle radius
stud spacing

R2 nut width

Mounting studs with bushings, springs, claw, peghead string retainer bar, and allen wrenches are included. The block is 1-5/8" (41.28mm) deep, for retrofitting in Strat® guitars or in custom solidbodies. The block, baseplate and fine tuners are brass, and other parts are steel.

Guitar body and neck routing may be required for installation. We recommend our tremolo routing templates (#1118 for locking tremolo) for accurate results. This original-style Floyd Rose tremolo may not be a direct replacement for Ibanez, Jackson, Washburn or other versions.

Better than the original...

though not by much, and hands down to Floyd for the design that probably would have got him " the electric guitar tech of the century award " if it wasn't for the recent change of millennium..

i run the locking Shaller machines + graph tech, as apposed to the locking nut that comes with the deal here however; not that i ever had problems with my old floyd breaking strings ( polish the nut contact areas and your good ) but that, given the option, by virtue of a fresh build, i am one of those weird-Os that would rather have both tuning options open at all times.

Firstly, I am consistently impressed with Stewmac's customer service and UNGODLY FAST SHIPPING. How they get stuff to me so fast, I may never know.
I picked up the Scaller Floyd Rose to replace the Jackson licensed jt580lp in my 2007 WRMG. The Jackson Floyd has served me VERY well, but with rusty screws and an ability to collect dust that rivals that of an old tube television, it was time for an upgrade. Upon simply laying eyes on the Schaller, I knew that it a substantial piece of equipment, only reinforced when I picked it up. The weight is evidence that this thing is quality. SOLID. I immediately noticed the thickness of the baseplate, and overal quality of every piece. Even the sustain block (which is, on any other Floyd, anything but) was of decent size and weight. Impressive, considering that piece is just about always the corner that is cut. I finally understand why this hardware has an adament and loyal following. REAL metal? Finally, no more mystery meats. My only complaint is that I didn't get it sooner. This thing is THE REAL DEAL.

I Was searching for a good upgrade for a Jackson Japan Pro series, and Schaller is good like FR Original.
