Les Paul guitars with a Floyd?

Hey, guys.

I'm looking for a les paul shape guitar that has a Floyd Rose.

Here's what models I know of so far.

Agile - 3100, Dauntless, 2000
Les Paul - Neal Schon Signature,Alex Lifeson Les Paul
Epiphone - Goth and a few others
ESP - Eclipse 1000 or Deluxe has one.

Are there anymore guitars or is that the only ones out there in the market today?

Thanks.

Re: Les Paul guitars with a Floyd?

Gibson just released a Les paul with an Original floyd rose. It's call the Les paul Axcess. I see that is have Alex Lifeson sig up there, but I'm not sure if you're referring to the new Axcess, cuz Lifeson has had several les pauls in the past with floyds.

Re: Les Paul guitars with a Floyd?

There was a Floyd Rose unit made specifically for tune-o-matic bridges that fit right in with no routing. http://www.vintagekramer.com/parts6.htm . The Kahler 2200 is also made to retrofit onto a Gibson, but I don't know if any modification is needed.

Keep these in mind when 'Paul shopping.

Re: Les Paul guitars with a Floyd?

Thanks for the tip Doink.

Oh, I forgot the access just because I can't afford it.

I'm really liking the eclipse model though and I'm thinking it might be the one for me.
Only thing I would like different is a ebony fretboard instead of the rosewood but that's just me.

Maybe I'm a purist, but a Gibson Les Paul with a Floyd and locking nut simply DOES NOT look right to me:

I'm with you man, the Les Paul should not have a Floyd, it just goes against the sustain machine the gutar is designed to be... but hey, different strokes for different folks!!!!

Indeed, not sure about the point of getting a Les paul with floyd, I mean you should get a Dean ML or something like that instead.
