    Default Kramer Question (Floyd & D-Tuna)

    Are Floyd Rose's on Kramers (like Baretta, Pacers, Focus') floating only (body routed on top) or can you screw the springs down so it can sit flat (and use a D-Tuna)? Just curious if others have these types of guitars and have experience. Thanks

    It looks like you have to block the trem according to this link...

    Thanks for the reply. But if you put a block of wood between the trem block and the body, you won't be able to go down with it either (I think). It just makes the tremolo immobile. The quarter I can see.

    Chris, there are several ways to keep the trem from floating. The tightening of the trem screws as you mentioned is one. Some have put a screw in the cavity of guitar to stop forward movement of trem block. This allows it to dive bomb, but won't allow pull up. The Tremsetter is a great tool, but is difficult to get fine tuned. Floyd Rose makes a trem stop that basically does the same thing as the screw in cavity. I like the Trem-o-nol. It allows me to use lock the trem, dive only, or full floating. It's easy to install and has worked great for the past year that I've been using it. It's worth a look...

    www.meanstreetguitars.com offers a trem stop that works really good I bought 2 of them to try out I put on my kids guitars and they do what they do, on my stuff I just use a solid piece of hardwood between the sustain block and the body.
