so i'm going to buy a cheap crappy floyd rose...

and I need your help determining which one looks better quality.

I am not these expecting these to be good by any means, but the project I am working on doesn't look right with anything but a gold floyd rose, and I don't have money for a gotoh floyd. I hardly use vibratos anyway, but if any of these is 1/2 as decent as an orginal or an edge, I will be a happy camper.

so which of these do you think? (carefull, these licensed under floyd rose patent tremolos are very scary and hideous)

230176642608

150166332963 - im leaning towards this one

130157940098


thanks!

Re: so i'm going to buy a cheap crappy floyd rose...

1.) No dice. Just by looking at the base plate, you can tell it's pot metal.
2.) Meh... It looks okay, but Eden makes total junk. It's safe to assume that it won't be any good, at all.
3.) Looks dodgy as well.

TBH, I think you'd be much better off going with one of these; http://store.guitarfetish.com/goflroflotrs.html

Seriously, just skip all the crap and buy one from GFS. Their customer service is just A+.

If it's gonna be crappy, take Sal's advice and buy the LoTRS. Gold Original Floyd's from Carvin are $199.

You don't need to ask the same question multiple times, especially bumping old threads....
