    Question

    Hello,

    I recently bought a Floyd Rose recently off of Ebay but it didn't include the little chrome bar that is installed on top of the locking nut.I was wondering how much this little piece costs in any music store?

    Thanks.

    The question is not, "Does love exist?"
    But when she leaves, where she goes?
    I got the feelin' she don't know either
    Wait like the wind, watch where she blows

    If the nut locks, why does the string need to be retained?

    Hmmmmmm..............

    The strings can go out of tune when you clamp down, without the string retainer there.

    I thought I was making a cute play on words.
    Guess I'm not funny after all!

    How bout, "Never play with your G string behind the nut, or you could go blind!" ???

    anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
