Default non floating trem guitar with extra jumbo frets?

I strongly dislike floating trems, and am looking for something that will stay in tune after multiple extreme divebombs etc. So I was thinking a floyd that is un routed and non floating might be the answer. My favorite hard tail guitars are my ESP Ec-1000 and H-1001 for their extra jumbo frets which I believe are dunlop 6100.

So Ideally I am looking for something that has that size frets with an unrouted non floating floyd and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

I know that the Wolfgang guitars are non floating but have "vintage" (small) frets. I have been looking at the 80's kramer focus guitars on ebay which seem to be unrouted with the original floyd but I don't know the fret size and they seem low end.

I know that it's possible to block off the upward motion on a floater but if it came unrouted I think that might be better for more sustain and less work to set up. Any recomendations would be welcome. thank you.

hmmm... a floating trem with tuning issues?.. that's still a problem these days?.. all my guitars have floating trems and stay in perfect tune everytime.. if you want tho, you can check out an Ibanez with a zr2 trem on it.. it's floating but has a "zero point" return and instead of knife edges, it has ball bearings it hinges on..

Most Kramers have medium jumbo frets. If the guitar is a bolt on neck you can shim the neck to get the trem to lay flat but like Daffy says it shouldn't go out of tune floating.
