Where can I buy an Offical Floyd Rose? Warmoth doesn't have any in stock.
Not sure if all of these places would have them in stock but is a good place to start.
Over the years I have had great luck with Guitar Parts Depot.com for OFR parts... and they have full systems available as well.
Yeah...I saw the places listed, but I'd rather buy online. I hate calling around. The shops with websites listed don't have inventory listed online.
Thanks...I'll give that link a try.
Try Carvin, they used to sell them as well.
Warmoth's got them cheaper and they come with the nut instead of having to buy it separately like you do at Carvin.
Get the Gotoh it's better made than the OFR is now or an old one (80's).
I've heard the Schaller's better as well but I honestly don't much about FRs.
I'm sure Schaller and Gotoh are great Floyd's, but I'd have to do some routing to get them to fint on my guitar, and I don't want to do that.
What color floyd are you looking for? PM me I may be able to help
I thought Schaller made the OFRs and they're the same width at the posts?
The Gotoh fits perfectly if you use a set of Allparts string lock bolts as the ones supplied are longer.It is also cheaper and made of a lot harder metal and has better travel in the fine tuner ,that together with the fact that the OFR has gone down in quality is the reason the Suhr switched to Gotoh recently as well.
The width is the same but the intonation point differs so it is possible to get a circumstance were it fits but won't intonate.
