Floyd Rose Discovery Series

Electric 6-String Guitar

Made by Floyd Rose

Description I finally got my hands on one of these new Floyd Rose guitars, with the speed system, allowing the strings to be changed in a very short time. Mine has two humbuckers. Made in China, a surprise to me, but very finely crafted.

I have been waiting for years to get my hands on one of these, thinking that I would have to pay alot for a BC Rich, but Floyd designed these, had them built in China, and is selling them for alot less than they are worth.
Model Year: 2005
Price: $419.99 (new)
Where Obtained: Musicians Friend
Features:
Made in China. Neck has a maple fretboard with 22 frets. One volume control on the strat-like body, far enough away from where the hand is to not knock the volume down, but close enough to pinky it if I want. I got the one with two humbuckers, but the other models have three single coil, or two single and one humbucker. Passive electronics, these discovery series models come in blue, black or red. The bridge is the newest technology in the guitar world, the Floyd Rose Speed System Tremolo Bridge.
Playability:
The action on this cutie is as sweet as molasses, very low and just right. The neck is nicely shaped and easy to move around. Plays as well as a Les Paul or PRS or Strat. Noticed a very small flaw, a crack in the paint, a few days after I fell in love with it
Sound Quality:
Right out of the box this baby sang to me and made my fingers squeal with delight.
Durability:
Ok, no manual comes with it. So, you simply must go to Floyd's site and download one in order to learn how to set them up properly.
