    Hello everyone, and thank you in advance for reading. Thanks a TON for any responses. This project is a 2000 RG470 (MiJ, basswood,Wizard II rosewood, V8/S1/V7, Lo-TRS, New Penny color). I love the neck and body shape. I hate the tone and sustain. Since it's built to be a shredder, that's...

    Ok so i just put a Gotoh floyd Rose in my s470 and after setting up the intonation the hex bolts that lock in the low e, a, and g strings stick out just a little past the edge of the routed trem cavity. I dont hav a router so what would be the easiest way to fix this?

    Ok so, im currently using the Edge III that can in my guitar (RG350m-ye) i'm getting by, i play standard tuning so i can just about keep the tuning under control (although it is a pain to alter or reset the bridge) having swapped out the pickups (BKP's now ;P), and added a buckethead style...

    I've used an Ibanez FR for 10 years. After buying a fixed bridge Tele, I'm staring to believe what others say about floating trem equipped guitars having less punch and a thinner tone. Anderson Guitars claim the Gotoh FR has a fuller tone than other FRs - any opinions on floating/locking trems...

    Is it possible to install a gotoh floyd rose into a ofr cavity route and still use the gotoh stud anchors and studs? The reason I'm asking is because the gotoh anchors are fairly longer than the ofr ones, and I think it would be bad if they were sticking out into the spring cavity

    I ordered a gotoh floyd rose off of this guitar parts website and recieved it today, and I noticed that the bits that attach the locking nut to the neck were not included. Shouldn't I have recieved them with everything else or can I pick them up somewhere else cheap?
