A good replacement
Gustav P, 26.09.2020
I used this after the original "Floyd Rose Special" (Jackson licensed Floyd) decided to crap out on my Jackson SLATXMG3-7, having multiple saddles slowly wear down over time.

This FRT-S200B would be considered an upgrade, since it has better materials, a more solid sustain block and overall tighter tolerances. There is a noticeable difference from the first time you hold it in your hands, as it feels way more solid.

One thing to note is that the sustain block on this is a "37". This might be what was in your guitar from the factory, but in my case it was not. Neither does Floyd Rose seem to manufacture blocks of the original size on my "Floyd Rose Special". Luckily, the backplate tolerances in my Jackson could clear the larger block, and with new springs and spring tension set correctly, worked without a problem.

Intonation, with the correct tools, worked better than expected. The guitar now stays better in tune than it has ever done before. The sustain is noticeably improved. I trust my bridge to grip the strings like it's supposed to, and the fresh new bridge looks solid.

Just an overall improvement to what it replaced, and a genuinely well machined bridge.

The difference between a cheap and a quality instrument (not only the price tag) ;)

Hello!

I installed this bridge on a project guitar, which had a licensed FR bridge, and I'm glad I have made this upgrade.

The materials used in this bridge are high end, it feels heavier than the licensed FR bridge, which in my opinion it could give a better sustain.
The included vibrato block is 34mm built with top notch materials. Make sure it will fit in the cavity of your guitar. In my case it did not fit well, so I had to remove the cover on the back, not a big deal.
Tunning stability of this bridge is great, I can abuse of the tremolo bar and the guitar will remain in tune, I love it!
Installation was easy, I'm not an experienced guitar technician, just starting my journey on it. I was lucky that it fitted the cavity of the previous bridge, otherwise some routing may be needed.

The only inconvenient I would put on it is the price tag, 385€ for a bridge could be a bit high but in terms of quality I can say it's worth, it makes your guitar feel and play better.

Another important thing to remark is the exellent service of Thomann, quick processing of the order and very quick shipping.

Greetings.
Eduardo.
