Anyone know where I can get floyd arm holder?

I see changing your arm holder to a floyd type screw in arm holder is a popular mod, seen at
http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f21/re...res-34038.html

Don't want to reanimate a ten year old thread, so anyone know where I can get one of those arm holders for my original edge? I hate having to replace the bushings so often.

You can also take some finger nail polish, apply to the edge arm underneath where the washers go. Put your old bushings on and it will be snug again.

I see. I thought that this was just the arm, but is it the whole appliance, with holder?

Yep, that includes everything you need. You can get schaller ones for cheaper, prob the same quality too. You will need a slightly longer screw than what is included though, since the Edge baseplate is thicker than a standard Floyd Rose. You can get a single screw at ace hardware if those are nearby.

I recommend the new Floyd Rose Turbo Trem

It's just like the regular bar, just with an allen key at the botom... No more allen wrenches in the back of the headstock! And it comes with the holder

That's the one you want - you can buy it directly from Floyd, and this is their new push-in style arm, with an exterior bushing/tension adjustment hex screw a la Gotoh. Best arm holder I've ever used.

Is that just like the arm on the Gotoh 1996t? If so, then it looks like the Schaller's on my edge's have to go and are gonna be replaced!
