    Default 1984 Floyd Rose on Black and White Striped Series

    I am sure it has been done by many, but I put one on last night and now the strings almost lay on the fretboard. Are the EVH Floyd's different than the 1984's in saddle height etc?

    Did you intonate the saddles?

    Yes indeed looking at the Floyd site it has a lot of different dimensions than the OG

    Wondering if I put a 2nd block shim on it if it will help? I put the EVH one back on and the string action and height is perfect for me.

    Maybe you need to raise the pivot posts up a little bit

    If this is the case, I’d say leave it on. Use the 84’ Floyd on something else.

    It’s not going to make any difference when it comes to the sounds or how the guitar plays, anyways.

    The EVH Floyds are just Floyd 1000s, made from the same material as OFRs but in a Korean Factory. The Floyd Specials are made in the Korean factory with cheaper materials.

    You could swap the '84 on, raise the posts, and try to get the action right. But I agree with MF5150 - if it ain't broke don't fix it. Leave the EVH Floyd on the guitar and use the '84 on something else.

    Default 1984 Floyd Rose on Black and White Striped Series

    The 1000 Floyds, material-wise, are the same exact ones made in Germany, just put together in Korea like Jedi said. Now if it was a Special I would say yeah it makes sense to upgrade it, since it is lower grade materials.

    I ended up putting the EVH back on and it's perfect now, just wanted to get rid of all the EVH Branding

    After researching I have noticed my 1984 Floyd has 1 long shim under the 4 middle saddles. I believe that means it is for a non 12-16 compound radius. If I remove that will that make it so the 1984 Floyd will work?
