Re: Floyd Rose Pro question
I just received the OFR 7-string (not OFR Pro) bridge for a guitar I am building. As this is my first OFR, I was wondering about whether locking studs are as important with the OFR inserts as for the Edge series. Those of you who have them, what do you think?
Because of the stud design, it seems unlikely that a LoPro style concentric locking screw would be possible (or advisable). That pretty much leaves the option of a set screw in the bottom of the anchor to bottom against. But as Rich pointed out, that isn't much fun to adjust. I haven't measured the thread yet, but I wouldn't be suprised if it is hard to find a set screw to fit it either.
I probably won't worry about it until/unless I have a problem, but I was curious whether any of you had any problems due to the lack of locking studs. Comments?
