The only thing that's a pain on a Floyd (as compared to a vintage-style trem) is setting intonation. But the frequency that I need to set intonation on one of my Floyd guitars is a minuscule fraction of the time I spend putting nut sauce in vintage nuts. LOL.

    I'll admit, I have also become very fond of the non-Floyd floating Majesty bridge, and also the pulled-up floating vintage trem on the LIII (although the heads of the saddle height screws often annoy me because they're rough on the hand).

    But the fact is if you want to rock and never have tuning issues no matter how hard you play it and how much trem use you do, you can't beat a Floyd.


    Agreed! I can abuse the heck out of the trem on my JP16 and she simply does not go out of tune. I don't get the hate some folks have for Floyds.

    Omg! Wow that is an amazing guitar. Think I drooled on my keyboard.

    Jeff- what’s the backstory on this guitar? Was it a one-off for an artist or show?

    Another awesome one. I'm not normally a fan of brown guitars, but I'll make an exception. Where do you manage to find all of these?

    Haha. Same. I'm always amazed by the number of people who think it's complicated and difficult to change strings and tell me they'd never have one. Takes me only a few minutes longer than my non-Floyd guitars and almost never goes out of tune. The only minor annoyance for me is drop tuning them.
