Very High Quality Tremolo

Bought this to replace a Floyd Rose Special on a Jackson Soloist - the improvements are vast. Overall quality, tuning stability and durability seem to be far superior. The Gotoh also has identical knife edge spacing, so will drop right into the existing recess. For this reason I didn't use the included posts to avoid drilling holes into the guitar but it seems to work fine regardless. It's worth noting that the screws at the back are about 5mm longer on this than on similar Floyd Rose systems, so if your guitar has a recessed tremolo like mine make sure it fits properly otherwise you'll either have to enlarge the recess or buy shorter screws / use Floyd ones. Overall would highly recommend, shipping was fast and everything arrived well packaged. Considering this thing is less than half the price of an original FR I don't think it can be beaten on value!
