Re: Dean FBD
I bought an 79 series mlf ($650),
swapped out the crappy floyd, for a schaller ($165)
Put in a L500XL ($50)
Put in SD '59 with push pull tap ($80)
$945 total... The FBD runs around $850, and you dont get a real floyd, and no SD '59. What are you paying so much for? The crest on the headstock, and the sticker (which is too big, and folds into the floyd cavity)... I would return it, and get the mlf, and do the mods. Besides, dime didn't play the tribute guitar when he signed to Dean again, he used a modded 79 milf, so why not just get that?
