Although I have owned nearly 100 guitars in my lifetime, the vast majority were either an original Floyd Rose or a hard tail bridge. I am awaiting a Modern that has a Gotoh Floyd installed, but the more I study Suhr guitars, I see quite a few that have the Gotoh 510 installed. Could some of you share with me the main differences between the Gotoh Floyd and the Gotoh 510 from primarily a functionality standpoint as well as any tonal differences between the two?

Thank you...Chris

I've never played a 510 but I can tell you the Gotoh Floyd is much, much better than the original Floyd of recent years. I was back and forth trying to make a decision like you and I decided to go with the Gotoh Floyd instead of the 510 after speaking (via email) with John.

This is what he said to me...

"Well the Gotoh Floyd sounds good and stays in tune, if you are used to Floyds you might be disappointed with the limitations of the traditional non locking bridges. If you want the "response" of a more traditional bridge you could use a standard nut. This way you would not be limited by the radius issues. It will still stay in tune 95% as well as a double locking."

I decided to go for it and I am not dissapointed.

Hope this helps!

Most of the matters of the net are resolved for the candidates. This has been emergent issue and custom essays for the nomination of the terms for the people.
