floyd rose 80mm mounting post/stud spacing

I've been taking apart and upgrading an old guitar i bought off ebay. The floyd bridge I took out is pretty beat up and needs replacing.

The centre of the mounting posts is 80mm but I can only find genuine floyd roses with 74.5mm spacing. Its a licensed trem bridge with no model/serial number and even the Ibanez Edge licensed floyds I checked out have the same spacing of 74.5mm.

I've re-wired and re-finished this guitar so I'm trying to avoid dowelling & redrilling for the new bridge simply because i want to start a new project(and i know i'll mess this up!!!).

Does anyone know of a Floyd Rose with the 80mm spacing?

Funny enough, I've found your post just right now trying to answer the same question.

I have my old Yamaha RGZ-621 - nice guitar overall, but the bridge is really crappy. I'd like to find a replacement, but failed to find any with 80mm spacing.

What model/brand is your guitar?

Re: floyd rose 80mm mounting post/stud spacing

The majority of Floyds have the 74mm 73.9 according to Warmoth centre to centre spacing, the Gotoh FR has a wider range as the bass side baseplate has a flat knife edge with no sides. I think it can go to 78 or so maybe 80mm

Personally it would be easier to dowel the old holes and redrill for a bridge you can easily find a Floyd to fit the standard spacings.

Yeah I guess the best option is to fill & re-drill the holes and fit a decent Floyd on as I've gone to the trouble of making a piece of crap into a demon shredder psycho hose beast.

All I wanted to do was put a EVH D-Tuna on to mess around with and I guess a bit of extra work will pay off. It wouldn't fit the original anyway. Plus don't by Chinese imitation rubbish n expect the world!!!

The guitar had Gibson on the headstock but it was a sticker - I knew it wasn't gibson as it cost 60!! The bridge is Chrome and cleaned up well but the screws that lock the string in place are INFRONT of the fine tuner knobs where Floyds are below. If you want it its yours but I would go for original Floyd or better with a Brass sustain block for extra hold. You'll be looking in vain to find a decent Floyd thats outside the standard spacing of 74.5 mm.
