    It's not heavy. It's very light just looks heavy.

    Not that you need to worry now with locking tuners and a locking nut, but looking at the closeup of your head stock, the tuning issues you may have experienced before might have been solved by using the "locking method" of wrapping strings on the tuner post. There's some good photos on the forum somewhere, posted by another of our illustrious members. With locking wraps and a well cut nut you won't have any tuning issues.

    Maximum visual impact. If that was mine, I'd call it Superfly. Older folks will get the meaning.

    That really is a cool looking guitar.
    What amplifier(s) do you use with it?

    Got to love the haters lol.
    It's a string lock, does what it ment to nothing more nothing less. Nothing moves so nothing goes out of tune.

    Not sure what it is converted to USD but in British sterling it would cost just under £300 for the Floyd rose and the cost to import it would cost around half that.
