Floyd Rose copy with adjustable saddles

Post by The Chad on Fri May 24, 2013 9:40 am

WD Music had a Floyd copy made a while ago that had individual saddle adjustment screws.

CLICK HERE to see one on Ebay

Anyone have experience with or know about these?

Pondering buying it for the Dynasty.

i have one of those in chrome finish. it is pretty much like new, maybe a few fingerprints...
i used it on a Washburn G-5V because the Washburn trem had 2 mismatched saddles.
excellent fit. solid build.
i ended up removing it because i discovered the guitar had some other more serious issues, so it is now sitting on my work table unused.
do you want a chrome version?
(i don't have the whammy bar)

You rock Mike, that's it. I need a black one however so I'll sadly have to pass on the chrome.

I wonder if my Dynasty would intonate properly with it. The stud spacing should work fine I think. From the knife edge to the saddle furthest front and saddle furthest back is the crucial part! The Schaller will work, just costs more than I can do right now. I discussed it here CLICK HERE.

Well I just bought a black one, let's see if it'll work on my Dynasty. Laughing

It's the WD Music Gotoh clone with brass block and adjustable saddles, just like the chrome one above.

I'll advise once it arrives.

Received the WD Music trem. Very nice, high quality and well built. One problem though, the 37mm. block doesn't work without routing my trem cavity! The springs hit the wood.

So rather than route my body, I'm selling this trem to fund a unit with a 42mm block. The stock Westone Bendmaster FT has a 45mm sustain block, which is very odd. So I'm hoping a 42mm will work.
