Much better than the old FR - but beware of the installation!
Maikel J, 03.04.2018
After careful consideration, I finally dare to install the FRX on my Gibson SG standard, which - apart from the two screws for the clamping saddle - initially "bloodless" proceeds, so without further drilling or milling.

I have previously looked at the Youtube video of Master Rose myself, which I absolutely recommend to anyone interested! In any case, you should check carefully before buying his guitar using the FRX dimensional sketch, if the miracle really fits there. As Floyd himself says, the part "for Gibson guitars" was developed, ie mainly original Les Pauls and SGs, but this does not necessarily have to work on copies of these guitars from other manufacturers or even completely different models!

The trick is, firstly, that the Les Paul and SG necks are strongly angled glued to the rear and thus the strings on the bridge relatively high (about 20 mm!) Run over the carcass surface, and this "ground clearance" requires the FRX necessarily, otherwise it will sit on the floor like a car that is too low and you will not get any reasonable strings.

Secondly, the FRX requires existing holes and sleeves of a Gibson-type stop tailpiece at the Gibson-typical location and with 82 mm bolt spacing, so that the integrated bridge comes again exactly to the scale-correct position.

Although my SG actually meets both requirements, it turned out during the installation that the "ground clearance" for the FRX was still not sufficient and thus either the string position was too high or the deflection unit on the pickguard (the SG standard has a large ) and hampered the function of the FRX.

Since the touch inevitably also scratches on the pickguard (or in an LP on the ceiling) leaves, I had to make another case of drilling decision in my case and have at the point of the scratch, which now served me as a position marker, with a s.der Tip very flat-angled 12mm metal drill milled a small funnel into the pickguard (the 5-layered one can see very carefully when careful approach, when exactly with drilling must stop ;-)).
And of course, everyone has to decide for themselves whether they would like to enjoy their "sacred" guitar!

So, but now to the actual rating:

Now, with the necessary ground clearance, you have a 1A low string position and the FRX is just about 3 mm away from the bridge PU. The clamp saddle sits clean in front of the actual guitar saddle and does what it should.

If you have properly installed and adjusted everything according to the instructions of the master or after the installation and moved the lever for the first time, you immediately notice the soft and sensitive response, which personally appeals to me much more than the "hard" translation of the old one FR. You can still let the strings relax completely by further pressing, if you want that.

I also find it pleasant that the lever (with horizontal rest position orientation of the base plate) is not so far up, but is at the height where I possibly need it. And you can finally adjust the rotation by two screws clean!

The thumbscrew to limit the lever movement only downwards seems a bit fiddly, but works.

The newly introduced ball head screwdriver, to keep the system a bit fuller in the rest position, also works well and is another icing (but does not have to be used necessarily).

And, of course, the tuning stability is in full, and that's the main purpose of the system!

Conclusion:

For retrofitting on a valuable existing guitar without too serious interference in the substance from my point of view absolutely no alternative and not just a "makeshift", but in the function again an advance over the previous system.
And my SG is finally not out of tune :-)

In direct comparison with other FR guitars, my combination SG-FRX has done so far (in the sound anyway ;-)).
