    1. GREAT Floyd rose replacement but requires some drilling and routing 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 6, 2018

      I used this Gotoh to replace my Floyd rose special that did not stay in tune. It's cheaper than the standard Floyd rose by a lot and its the same quality if not better.

      Be sure to look at all the measurements.
      The mounting studs are bigger than the standard Floyd rose studs so you will need to drill bigger holes. The Gotoh is also slightly longer so some routing to the bottom of the guitar body will be required. Keep that in mind.

      It definitely feels heavy duty. The guitar has a nice clearer sound with more bass now with the Gotoh Floyd. The arm is bigger and doesn't hit against the body like the Floyd rose did. Gotoh has made some improvements with this over the Floyd rose.

    4. A Well Refined Replacement 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 11, 2017

      I used this in an older Gibson MIII where the Schaller made Floyd Rose was no longer reliable. As most know by now, on many models the metal was soft, things go stripped, and quite frankly, I wasn't willing to pay for a real Floyd replacement. Look around on the forums and you'll see plenty of thumbs up for the Gotoh. They've taken the original and certainly improved on it. Do some due diligence and take some measurements for best fit (all provided here on the PL site). On a side note, PL provided fast and accurate support. I had a brain fart moment, and PL politely got me straightened away. Would totally buy here again.
