Post Best Locking Tremolo options
Hey all,

so, I know someday I'll have to change my cheap Jackson licensed floyd rose to a better trem... but I don't really know which are the best options for the price.

Of course, I've read wonderful things about Schaller briges... but they are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE (seriously, 300 bucks + for a trem?).

I was thinking about something cheaper, like an Original Floyd Rose, or Gotoh bridge.

Which ones do you guys recommend?

Thanks,

Matt

I don't think 300 is too much for a trem. Consider the stresses the things are subjected to.

I always find John Suhr makes sense on hardware. He fits Gotohs (and now OFRs) and his reasoning on that can be read in several places on the net.

I bought a couple of original Floyds, & put them on some guitars I used to own.
I loved them!
I think it was less than $200 at the time.

Gotoh and Schaller are amazing.
If Schaller is too expensive and you can get a Gotoh for a good price, then go for the Gotoh.

Otherwise, those are also very good:
