Floyd Rose Tremolo Collapsed!!!

Post by eppo15 »

Hello, i need some advice!

The wood of my Talon IV split and the Bridge Mounting Studs and Inserts came loose, resulting in a Collapsed Floyd Rose Tremolo...
:o :o :o :o :o

It happend before (years ago) and i had it repaired bij D.Dijkman who was a professional guitar builder.

Does anyone have some experience with this?
I want it fixed, but is it possible to repair it for a second time? (how long the glue lasts)

Any help or tip is appreciated!

regards,

The wood on the Talon bodies is very light and very weak. I would suggest looking for a replacement Heartfield body and transfer your trem and electronics. I have a spare body but ironically it has a crack at that spot as well.

A replacement Heartfield body is a option, but are all Heartfield parts (neck, body, tremolo etc.) interchangeable?

According to Wikipedia:
Floyd Rose Pro: The bridge has a narrower string spacing (0.400 inches or 10.16 mm in this design versus 0.420 inches or 10.66 mm of the Floyd Rose Original).
