Floyd Rose Posts

Ive got some Chinese made electric guitars with Floyd Rose trems. The problem is the trem doesnt return properly after use causing tuning problems. I think Ive narrowed it down to the 2 posts on which the Floyd sits. They are not angled inwards from top and bottom, just the top. So the lower part on which the trem sits is flat.

I need to replace them with better quality posts to get the Floyd to stay in tune properly. My question is: is there a supplier who sells this kind of component without charging silly money?

thanks y'all

Make sure the locking nut is on there solidly too. I've been through a lot trying to get my N3 to come back up exactly in tune, and after all of this time, it turns out the nut is moving a little.

When you buy Chinese knock-offs, that what you get--poor quality guitars!
