It's like driving a stick compared to an automatic.

Argghhh... why is it being a "kid" if I want to use a Floyd for dive bombs and other effects? That's just...

Anyway, I have a lot of different Floyd guitars, and they are setup in a few different ways - recessed and floating, not recessed and floating, and not recessed not floating (with or without D-tuna), a la Van Halen. I find the last one, while limiting my pull back, to be my favorite as of late. Not because the string change is usually easier (which, I guess it could be, but not the way I change my strings), but I like the bridge to rest against the body for a little more sustain.

And, quite frankly, when it's set up like that, I think it's every bit as "stable" as as my guitars with fixed or hardtail bridges, if not moreso since the locking nut helps in case ther is incidental contact with the tuners.

I agree. That's just an assinine comment, Kotornut made. I think that comment was childish.
