Why would he say genuine floyd when he knows it isnt?!?
at least b4 we couldnt see the "licensed" in the photo and he was an inocent party.
This guy sells lower end instruments..
The times i have to go into the smaller music stores around me
they are usually pretty naive and not the best people to ask
about technical stuff.
I'll tell you a quick true story.
I literally JUST purchased a "ping" Floyd Rose.
But before I went with the ping..i was going to get a "Original Floyd Rose"
I went to floydrose. com and looked for a dealer in my area so i could see
the tremolo in person (i needed to check something)
So i drove there, the guy is like "oh we dont carry them in stock"..but I can order them. I'm like could you look on your computer and tell me
the price of your "original floyd rose". We walk to the computer..and he goes online and goes to allparts..
Makes a phone call to allparts.. gets off..and says its $XXX
we talk for another min and things aren't adding up in my head
So im like "are you quoting me for an "original" floyd rose..or another brand"?
He says its another brand (i cant remember which)
Im like.."i need an original floyd rose"
He says.. See right in the description on the webpage? It says floyd rose.
These guys are more than likely just not informed..which isnt a good thing at all, but I think you're wrong when you think this is a concious effort to thieve people.
I think a lot of people who aren't technically savy.. are going to think something that says "licenced by Floyd Rose" means its a Floyd Rose.
