    Default Floyd Rose Guitars for $149 on MF.

    http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navigation?q=floyd+rose

    I just bought one with a Speed Loader on it. Always curious to see how they worked. I see there are even some guitars with the original FR for $149. If the Floyd is the real thing it is worth the price alone.

    I started to buy one myself. I see Richie Sambora playing one.

    I just wonder how long FR will continue to make those "speed loader" strings after they stop production of the guitars.

    I'm interested to know what you think of this guitar after you have played it a while.

    I just got one of the DST-2 models: black with black pearl pickguard, black hardware, dual 'buckers, volume knob, 3-way switch. The Speedloader is WAAAAYYY cool, and the pickups are higher output with lots of string articulation. I'm playing a gig with it on Saturday night, can't wait to see how it performs.

    I saw this sale in the catalogue last week and couldn't believe it. I'm thinking that they just didn't sell that well and that Floyd can probably make more money licensing the system to other guitar manufacturers, rather than being in the guitar manufacturing business. I wouldn't be surprised to see this system becoming an oprion on other companies' guitars, in the near future.

    We've had one in the music store for well over two years. Nobody has wanted to buy the thing. (Maybe for $150, though!)

    I've seen these, too. Strings would be the issue for me. Are they hard too find?, Expensive? I'd like a white one to put some VH stripes on. And saw that headstock off !!

    Strings are VERY hard to find from what I've read. Dean Markley is the only company that makes them now... And go about $10 a set, and have a 3 week back order. Now one of the one's with the original Floyd might be worth it... But I hate Floyd's, so it ain't worth it for me....

    And I think the $150 was a mistake for the ones with the real Floyds, as they are back to $300 now...

    Notice there are several "Blems" now on the site...

    Not a good sign....
