help one more time with floyd rose system

Recommended Posts

This might be a stupid question but the saddles I guess that's what there called that holds the strings, are black but I want them chrome and im not paying almost 120 bucks for a new set.Would I be able to sand the black paint off and buy chrome paint and spray it like that.Or if I sand the black paint off will it already have the chrome look to it, or lastly do I not sand the black paint off do i just buy chrome paint and spray them like that?????????

thanks

 

$120 for a set of saddles? Do you have the string saver sadlles or something? Because a set of regular after-market FR saddles from StewMac is only around $20.

Yep, the Floyd Rose system was why I sold my first real electric: '81 Kramer Pacer. Great guitar, but changing the strings drove me absolutely nuts. Good thing I never developed EVH's chops...

lol im 14 so i have a lot of time on my hands nothing but just school, so when it comes to changing the strings I have the time and patience to figure it out.And i do know what your talking about i made it sound like i never used one before but the first I tried changing the strings I felt like banging my head through a wall lol

ok o the link-----im asking a question about if anyone knows were to get another one and also if your talking about me saying over again that im 14 and cant afford it is because im 14 and don't have a job ill be lucky to be able to buy one in 2 years when i do get a job and lastly i keep saying that, is because like i said im 14 cant afford one and im asking were i could maybe get another base plate which any smart person would realize it wouldn't cost anywhere near the price of a brand new floyd rose

fine! you wanna know why im asking why could fine one so cheap is because about 2 months ago my 9 year old brother was in an accident that took his foot right off lucky the surgeons were able to get his foot reattached.And since it was so serious they had a world know surgeon that was at the hospital at the time do the surgery.And guess what my parents got a bill for over 500,000 dollars.We are broke my moms a teacher my dad works for publix there not lawyers or doctors and we wont be able to pay it off for years and guess what my parents cant afford a Floyd rose bridge and if you wanna be a jerk again about this ill show you a picture of my brothers leg for proof and im sure you will.

I will take a step back......as you are a new guy.........I understand what you are saying.......us guys love to help any way we can younger guitarist..........but sometimes attitude and other slights between each other roll like a snowball down hill and get bigger etc................At times like this it is best to back off and try and reset..................you should apologize to R instead of upping the ante.

 

You understand...............................we can put this in the past...............and help you out..........just relax
