  • Vintage Guitar? No
  • Modifications: Modified
  • Comments: Originally a TOM bridge but converted to a very rare style of Fernandes Floyd Rose by the original owner. I've changed this to a Floyd Rose special. However all that remains of the special is the base plate as all other components of it I've upgraded. Steel saddles, big brass block, stainless steel bolts and locking screws, brass fine tuners and heavy duty springs. The colour scheme I've changed to black and gold which is nearly finished. Just the pickguard and tuners to go. It wails. Original owner left the posts in from the TOM that was in there. Not very visible but I'm considering a gold screw in cap on the inserts too. Narrow neck takes an R1 size locking nut. Very slim body and light weight. Of course it looks cool as fuck. Pictures to follow very soon.
