My old Dinky I traded out for a MiM Strat. I miss it, but then I recall how much I hated the Floyd. Loved the neck !

So, what do you hate about the floyd?
There might be a way around that.
Then again, some people just don't like them at all. haha

Well, it was a used guitar for one thing, I'm sure a new Floyd would have performed better. It had the Takeuchi block, so it was one of the better Floyd imports, but it was still a pain in the ass to keep tuned. Too many moving parts for my taste, too much stuff that could go bad.

I toyed with blocking it off, but that just kills the whole point of having a Floyd, right ?

I'm much happier with hardtails and string through Jacksons.

Gotcha. I was wondering if it was the whole floating bridge thing.
I like to block them off in front of the block. That way, you can still dive bomb with them but not pull up. Honestly, I don't use the whammy much, so I can understand the hardtail thing. My next project will have a flat mount bridge on it (no tuneomatic, though)

I had forgotten about those. Interesting.
I'm going to use a Kahler (non trem) on my next project,
and sooner or later I will try the regular Kahler trem.
