Re: PRS tremolo vs. Floyd Rose pro tremolo

A double locking, like a floyd, with a recess is going to give you more dynamic range, while also staying in tune better.

A PRS style trem is not really suited for super crazy whammy antics.

That depends on how much you plan on using the bar and also depends on how you use it.
If you're going to do even one dive-bomb-arm-pushed-to-the-body-mega-w*nk, then you will need the locking nut. If you just use the trem a little to accent notes, then no, you won't need a locking nut. You will however benefit from either a rolling nut or graphite nut. So either way a new nut is in order I would say.

Hey PRS just put out a new model with a floyd! And EMGS!
it's called the PRS Torero and it's very pretty. But it sure doesn't look like a PRS!
