FLOYD ROSE


Floyd Rose - an original chrome with d-tuna



I'm Locked on Floyd Rose

I am very particular when it comes to the type of tremolo I put on a guitar. For me, there's the original German-made Floyd Rose and then there's everything else. I'm even extremely picky about which types of Floyds I use.

I first got locked on Floyd Rose back in the early 1980s when I got into playing guitar. Edward Van Halen, began using the Floyd Rose fairly regularly in 1979 and he assisted Mr. Rose with the fine tuner design over the next few years. In 1983, I bought my first guitar. In 1984, I bought my first Floyd Rose that I put on my second guitar - my Red Devil II. I paid $159 that summer at the Guitar Center in San Diego for a chrome model (and over $100 more to have it installed). What a beautiful piece of German-made machinery!

My second guitar with a Floyd Rose was my third guitar, a 1985 Kramer Focus 1000 which has sinced morphed into my Kramer Baretta. I bought a couple of more guitars with Floyds in the 1980s and I thought it was a big deal to have four guitars with a Floyd Rose! I even had a license plate frame that read I'm locked on Floyd Rose. When I worked for the Guitar Center in San Diego from 1986-88, everyone called me Floyd, since there was another David working there and I was so into Floyds. I had the privilege to meet Mr. Floyd Rose at the NAMM convention in Anaheim in 1987 and he signed my business card. I even have a Kramer Floyd Rose signature model neck on my Kramer EVH Frankenstein II guitar.

Quarters and other Coins

The great Edward Van Halen also inspired me to only use the Floyd Rose tremolo to take the strings down - not to pull up. He used a quarter - an actual 1971 25-cent piece - to keep the Floyd base plate on his famous Frankenstein guitar from pulling up and to give it a solid "zero" point when it returns after action. I do the same thing with all of my Floyds, although I typically use 1976 bicentennial quarters and flip them around so the back with the drummer is always showing - I have no idea why I'm so particular about this, but it's what I do. I guess the 1976 quarter with the revolutionary drummer is musical, or something. I did, however, use relic '71 quarters on my Charvel EVH Frankenstein and Fender EVH Frankenstein Baritone guitars, an old '54 quarter on my Fender '54 Pine Super Strat, and a 2001 New York quarter on my D4 project. And then I went global and used a 2005 Isle of Man Christmas 50-pence coin, featuring a partridge in a pear tree from the 12 days of Christmas tradition, on my Kramer EVH 1225 Christmas guitar. And then I virtually traveled to Monaco and France to get a 2007 Monaco 2 Euro Grace Kelly coin for my Jackson Monaco Strat, and a 1985 quarter and 1875 French Angel 20 Franc Lucky Rooster coin (copy) inside the cavities of my Charvel DeMartini Snakeskin.

Color Schemes and the 1980s

Listed below are two tables listing all of my guitars that have Floyd Rose trems (mostly German and some licensed). I am very peculiar about a few things. First, I prefer chrome over black and gold. And if the bridge is black or gold, I always make sure to get a chrome trem arm (old school collar/bushing). I actually have more than a few black Floyds, but just one gold Floyd Rose - on my EVH Jackson-Kramer Bumblebee. Second, I prefer the Floyds to be from the 1980s - none of this new stuff. Note: I purchased two of the new Floyd Rose Originals in October 2005 from Ed Roman Guitars for a pair of Van Halen Charvels I put together. Chrome Floyd Roses from the 1980s, taken off of old Kramer Focus series guitars, are the best value.

Another fun thing to do to a Floyd Rose tremolo is removing the chrome plating off the Floyd base plate to make an unplated Floyd Rose. Why do this? I've tracked down quite a few old Floyd with pitting and rust, and this is a good way to get rid of all that and give it a nice matte steel finish. Check out the Removing the Floyd Rose Plating link for more info.

I love taking old Floyds apart and cleaning them (check out the Resurrecting a Floyd Rose link). I take very good care of them and take pride in their appearance. I am the original owner (bought many second hand) of four chrome Floyds from the 1980s (Red Devil II, Kramer Baretta, Kramer Pacer, Kramer EVH 82 Baretta) and they all are in like-new condition. I also have two guitars - my Smithtone Flintstones and my Kramer Kaoss - that feature chrome "pre-fine tuners" Floyds from the early 1980s.

The Floyd Rose Special, the 1000, and the II

In 2008, Floyd Rose began putting out Korean-made Floyd Rose Special tremolos, which are available from several online vendors for around $80 (chrome). Although not technically a "licensed" Floyd, the Special is now stock equipment on certain overseas-made guitars, including certain ESP LTD and Jackson model guitars. The steel base plate is embossed with the Floyd Rose Special stamp.

The main difference between the Special and the real-deal, German-made Floyd (besides the Special being made in Korea) is that the saddles and sustain block on the Special are made of zinc, instead of steel and brass. Since the Special's introduction, I've picked up a few and used them on my Jackson EVH Super Strat, Jackson JTX, Jackson Monaco Strat, Kramer EVH 1225, and Fender '54 Pine Super Strat guitars. On the Specials, however, I replace the block inserts, string lock screws, saddle lock screws, and trem arms and collars with real Floyd replacement parts. I also switch the sustain blocks with at least the Floyd Rose original (made in Germany) nickel-plated brass blocks. Also with the Specials, I sometimes replace the zinc saddles with steel ones. Lastly, I swap out the stock Special locking nut and use the real Floyd locking nut, as it is heavier and of a higher quality. After these modifications, the Special is comparable in quality to the Schaller, Ping, or Gotoh trems (see Licensed Floyds below).

The Floyd Rose 1000 looks the same (embossed with the Original-like Floyd Rose only) and has the same specs as the German-made Floyd - steel saddles, etc., but it's made in Korea like the Special. Even the base plate has the same quality hardened steel as the German-made Floyd plate - just made in Asia. And unlike the Special, the 1000 is not sold separately and is only available as OEM on guitar brands including Fender, Charvel, Jackson, and EVH (I have one on my Charvel DeMartini Snakeskin). The EVH-branded Floyd that comes on the Wolfgang Special and Striped Series models is a 1000, and I have an upgraded one on my EVH Wolfgang Stealth Special MIM.

The Floyd Rose II was available in the 1980s and came stock on the Kramer Striker series guitars. Besides the cheaper quality metal, the biggest difference was that the strings do not lock on the bridge end, but instead pass through what seems like the string lock screw. I found a deal on an old black II model and put it on my Floyd Rose Tornado project.

Licensed Floyds

What's with all of the licensed Floyds? Most of the licensed Floyds, in my opinion, are no where as close to perfection as the real Floyds. I do, however, have a few guitars with licensed Floyds - a Gotoh Music Man on my Ernie Ball Music Man EVH, the Gotoh 1996 model on a handful of Ernie Ball Music Man projects, and the stock Peavey Floyd (also by Gotoh) on my Peavey EVH Wolfgang, and Peavey EVH Wolfgang Special guitars. I also heard a lot of really good things about the quality of the Ping Floyd Rose (stock on Fenders) so I tracked down one of those and put in on my Fender EVH Frankenstein Baritone guitar. And in addition to making THE Floyd Rose, Schaller makes its own version and I have one on my D4 guitar.

Big Blocks and EVH D-tunas

In 2007, I finally discovered the 1/2"-thick, brass Big Block from FU-Tone (formerly FloydUpgrades.com). Wow! What a difference over the stock thinner German-made, nickel-plated brass blocks and I've purchased over 30 of these big sustain blocks to date. The first guitars I tried them on were my EVH 80 Star, EVH 82 Rasta, Fender EVH Frankenstein Baritone, and Charvel DeMartini Snakeskin. Most of my big blocks are made of brass, but I've also splurged on stainless steel, tungsten steel, aluminum, bronze, copper, and titanium.

Of course, quite a few of my axes feature the EVH D-tuna, which allows players to instantly go from E to D. They are super-easy to install and work flawlessly - Unchained forever! Most of the ones I've purchased are chrome, but I have quite a few in black and one in gold. I even put a limited edition red one on my EVH 82 Rasta. I even ordered a little bag of 50 of the replacement set screws to keep handy after I lost one. Man, are those things tiny!
