Floyd Rose Speedloader


Recommended Posts

Anybody know why speedloader trems are not to be found? And why the big push to unload speedloader equipped guitars. I have plans for a headless guitar and need a high-end trem that is going to be consonantly available. Seinberger is impossible to get. Thought the speedloader was going to be a good alternative.

Thanks

I was following the Speedloader for the same reason (a headless guitar idea), but the suppliers I was aware of (very few to begin with) dried up. And FR hasn't really been doing any push at all for the Speedloader. They had Brad Whitford from Aerosmith as an endorsee, and that's about it. Guitarists are by and large really danged conservative. Drives me nutz. (not on a personal level... guitarists I know and love are the same way... :D )

I was told by one supplier (a while back) that there was a law suite and the speedloader was taken off the market until it was settled. Musicians Friend and others liquidated there inventory of FR Discovery series guitars. I purchased one for $150.00 I wish I had got more because from what I’ve seen, that’s what you would pay for a trem system.
