Re: Floyd rose

I don't have time to run through all the differences. I'll just say Gotoh has what I like over the others.Great build quality,a brass block with screws securing the springs, locking studs,one straight and one curved knife edge, a nice solid arm mounting system and it fits in FR and Edge routs.

Re: Floyd rose

The Gotoh trems are basically pimped Edges. They come with the locking studs and brass blocks.

I wish they made them in 7 string flavour

Re: Floyd rose

One thing I should mention about the Gotoh is that it comes with a 40mm block which is a bit too tall to install the trem cavity cover on RGs. I just leave mine off.
