John, I understand that the Floyd Rose bridges are backordered through November? And that you've been waiting 5 months for new stock? (I probably have my story all screwed up, so apologies in advance! Wink) Could you shed some light on this situation? Is it due to parts, components, manufacturing processes/controls (or lack thereof), etc.?

But that said, what are the chances of getting a chrome Floyd (Joe's 4307) and a black Floyd (my 4305) for some February birthdates? Confused

thanks for the insights!!

What Mike said.
Any updates would be greatly appreciated.
Last I heard (which was on Feb 1st) was that it was gonna be 2 weeks until the Floyds came in. 2 weeks would be next Tuesday the 15th. Is that accurate?

Thanks,

Joe #4307

Although it sucks you guys have to wait b/c of a shortage of Floyds, it's nice to see others who still use a Floyd trem. People see a Floyd on your guitar and immediately think you’re a wanker from the 80's. Although I do wank from time to time (I'm talking about guitar playing Laughing ), it's still a great bridge for staying in tune even for the Gilmour style trem usage.

I curious the percentage of Suhr guitars that leave the shop with Floyd’s.

My friends call me a wanker... Confused
But really, I just wanna stay in tune while using a whammy bar.
I had no idea they were getting so rarely used. Or maybe over used if they are back ordered...Hmmm.

Now how about some Info from the SUHR camp about our Floyds?

hey guys, I am a recent owner of a suhr standard w/floyd rose. It's my first floyd guitar, and I am wondering how/if most of you guys have yours set up. Mine is completely floating, and I have to say it is set up sooo well, I'm tempted not to mess with it. But...I really don't like that it goes so flat when I bend notes. I'm thinking about a block on just the one side, and adjusting the springs a little tighter. What should I use for the block? How do I attach it to the guitar so that it doesn't fall out when I use the bar? Any insights or suggestions are greatly appreciated. I wish there was a way to lock/unlock the bridge with the trem bar, and have the guitar stay in tune. That would be the ultimate in versatility! ... John?

Use a piece of wood and place it between the tremolo block and the body (in the tremolo cavity). You can always use a little silicone glue and glue it to the block, not the wood, that way it is easy to remove should you decide later. The hardest part is trimming the wood shim to where the bridge will be level.

What Dave said. Eventually the TREMOL-NO will be available to us mere mortals and that will be the thing to get.
