Why would gibson use a cheap Floyd Rose trem on the $3500 acxess?


Recommended Posts

I love Gibsons LP's especially the new axcess, a really good idea.....But 2 things are keeping me from totally falling in love with it.

1. They use the cheap made in korea floyd roses (the shape of the sattles destinquishes if its a asian made or german made).


2. The slimmer body (the reglular LP thickness would of been more kickass, weight relieved of corse)

FR is not what they used to be' date=' yes they did really get the trem thing going for those like (I'm sorry for bringing up this name) EVH and countless others who like to abuse the trem. A few years ago Ibanez purchased the license and then took that as a benchmark and pretty much redesigned the unit (The Pro Version) on their Prestige models. Now if you like trems that the best copy one I have ever come across.

Thats the edge pro, and it doesnt come on 200 dollar ibanezs, more like 2000.


Personally the original edge is better.
