Re: Opinions on TOM vs Floyd rose
All of my guitars have double locking tremolos except for two Les Pauls. Most are Floyds and I have dealt with them since 1985. Never had many problems until recently. String gauge changes, adding big blocks, setting intonation and dealing with temperature changes at gigs have been a big issue lately. Even the angle of the trem bar seems to impact tuning lately.
I decided to bring one of my Les Pauls to a gig for our other guitar player to use. I changed the strings, stretched them and set the intonation in like ten minutes. This would have taken me over an hour on a Floyd.
Love Floyds and thrash them within inches of their lives and they always hold up but the simplicity of a TOM has me looking for a Jackson SLATQH.
