What floyd does my guitar have?

Hey everyone I'm kind of new and wanted to learn a bit about my guitar.

I got it second hand for 1100

The serial is F0035xxx
What year was it made then?

Also judging by the year what kind of floyd does it have.

Lo-Pro Edge or just an edge.

Thanks guys

Here you go





and another question. Does anyone know how to fix a stripped strap hole?



I had a show and I was tossing my guitar around and it just stripped right out. Luckily I caught it and finished the show fine but this is a real downer :/

Re: What floyd does my guitar have?

instead of fixing the hole you could probably put the strap button on the back of the horn

Re: What floyd does my guitar have?

Yeah, I might do that. But then there will be a big gap in the horn.

I have some mahogany wood filler. If I filled it all the way down and drilled a hole when it dries could that work?

For a quick fix some wood glue and toothpicks.

Re: What floyd does my guitar have?

That hole is a little big for the old toothpick trick. You really need to drill that out and plug it.

Use a drill bit that is just larger than the hole, and drill down about 1". Plug the hole with a matching hard wood dowel (from your local home center), and then re-drill the appropriate sized hole for the strap button screw.

If you do all this correctly, the strap button will cover most of the chipped paint, and it will be fairly unnoticeable.
