A rare Floyd Rose on a 80's MIJ Squier
Here's a fun one for fans of the Floyd Rose. The guitar is a great example of why some guys collect Made in Japan Squier's from the 1980's. It was in the shop for a simple restring and played and sounded great.
Here's our Floyd Rose tremolo,a rarely seen version,made to look more traditional but retain some of the advantages of a Floyd. Because someone had modified the guitar with some Schaller locking tuners,that means this guitar is perhaps the only double-locking guitar in the world that has neither a locking nut or fine tuners!
