I’m thinking of getting a Chibson LP with their fake Floyd Rose trem. I know it will be horrible. So I will replace it immediately.
I know the standard tailpiece posts use a different measurement than USA Gibsons, so I assume maybe the trem will also be a non-standard metric measurement. Does anyone know what replacement Floyd Rose or Gotoh trem model will fit to replace a Chibson with a fake Floyd? ALso what locking nut size (width)?… Can anyone recommend a dealer who doesn’t do sloppy trem routing work??? Thank you!
If in the US I would shoot for the StewMac golden age locking trem, its a drop in fit, just pull out the crappy posts and bushings, it’s a bit cheaper than the FR but it does hold up pretty well, and I put mines thru hell and back if not, the genuine trems should pop in but for all imports I’ve been using golden age trems,
