    Did you build // assemble those guitars?

    Are those Floyd Rose Trems or Licensed copies?

    Have you any experience with
    GOTOH Trems?

    Love that Blue color on the Bass!

    Thanks T top, I'm fond of the blue too. I'm getting ready to paint another of mine in a similar blue, but with illusion buried under a candy coat so you won't see the shift until the light hits it. Should look cool under stage lights and outdoors in the sun.

    My guitars are Fenders from the early 90's, they have original floyd rose tremolos (I have a few of these), they are my work horse gig guitars and will do all styles of music when needed. I made the pickguards, painted and assembled them. Do all my own work, also do work for a few music stores and clients in my spare time.

    I used to build my own when I was younger, but kinda got out of it. I'm kinda thinking about making a few as requested. Myself, I'm mostly a Strat guy, lusted for one when I was a teenager, bought one as soon as I could afford one and been playing them ever since. Got my first floyd in the late eighties it was a original B.C. Rich Warlock 6 string (I had lusted for a floyd for awhile), at first I hated it as it would go flat when bending notes, but soon learned its quirks and been playing them ever since (of course now they're all Strats).

    I've worked with several of the GOTOH tremolos, standard strat style and their lic. floyds, they are quality units. If you are you having trouble with yours, let me know what the trouble is and perhaps I can help you iron it out.

    I have just seen YouTube vids of 2 VERY enticing guitars.
    The Strat HM
    and the Schecter Silver Mountain FRS.

    I had recently found a site that sells bodies and necks.
    My interest is being re kindled : )

    I will ALWAYS have a Heart for Cars & Guitars

    ETA
    If I put 1 together, I was wondering if GOTOH was quality or riding on the Floyd Rose name.
    I NEED a Trem ; )
    and Floyd had ways been there.

    Both guitars (HM & FRS) are cool guitars!

    And like you, cars and guitars have always been where my heart is. If I'm not playing or driving, I'm working on one or the other. LOL!

    There are many tremolo systems similar to the Floyd Rose, but for me, I'm a fan of the original Floyd Rose tremolos.

    If you decide to put a guitar together, I'd be glad to help with any questions.

    I was told a long time ago that playing music is the most fun you can have, with your pants on...

    After a LITTLE thinking, I took a BIG step.
    I went ahead and ordered a Strat HM in
    Bright White.
    Picked it up thismorning. I have done an initial tune
    on it, but decided to let it acclimate before messing around
    with it.
    Feeling like a kid in a candy store : - )
