Re: Floyd Rose now makes "push-in" style trem arms
The push in Floyd bars are 'da bomb' - the missing link for me.
I've put two in for a friend on his Soloists, and they're great.
I have one in the packaging waiting to go onto my old 'mutt' with its 80s Floyd on it...
One thing though; the bars sit quite low, and Floyd missed the opportunity to put a bottoming screw in the sleeve in order to adjust the resting height of the bar - too bad. There's a hole there, it's just not threaded... I might try adding a thread to mine to see if it'll work... but otherwise, I've popped cotton ball wadding down into the throat of the barrel in order to give some height.
Bonus is that it takes some residual wobble play out of the bar/sleeve fit...
