Floyd or Lo-Pro

http://i1.lelong.com.my/UserImages/[email protected]

So I'm thinking of buying this 550 with a vine inlay. Is that a Floyd or a Lo-Pro? And are those Dimarzios that I see?

And one stupid question:
Do you think that I should get it.

Re: Floyd or Lo-Pro

arguably the finest locking bridge ever made. lo-pro is a variation on the edge theme.

Re: Floyd or Lo-Pro

I'll have to sell off my Strat first. This guy from Dragon Red is very interested (I've got many offers since I dropped the price ). I'm trying to persuade my parents into buying the RG first, and I'll pay them well I sell my Strat.

Re: Floyd or Lo-Pro

That looks exactly like what the VSBL should have been - minus the routs of course, and.. green!


Cant tell you about the pickups, i dont think there ever were 550s with stock white pickups... But seriously, if someone went thru all that to make that axe cool, he probably upgraded the pups too

Re: Floyd or Lo-Pro

You finally realized that RM2500 is a very unreasonable price for your guitar. RM1800 seems just about right.

Well, people who buy those are stupid then cause a new MIM standard strat is around RM1800.

Yup, but sometimes they usually get suckered by the seller anyway.
