chennik Posted January 16, 2009 Report Share Posted January 16, 2009 I"ve got a neck that I'm going to do a full scallop on the fretboard, then i'm going to build a new body and use some leftover parts to finish it off. The one thing I'm missing is a bridge. I can't make up my mind to go with a floyd or a fixed bridge. This is basically going to be a shredding super strat, and the floyd suits that concept. The downside is that it's more expensive, more work, and I'm not sure if the floating bridge creates any problems when doing crazy scallop fb vibrato etc. I'm quite used to the fact that when you bend a string on a floyd the others go out of tune. I'm wondering if this is more of a problem on scallop boards, where you can vary the force you fret a note with much more effect than on a standard board. The fixed bridge would be less expensive and less work, in addition to being more stable should I do any of that crazy vibrato, string bends, with all the other strings being held constant. The problem is, I have only played on scalloped guitars a few times and I don't remeber how this worked. I am crazy for even asking this? I don't know, I'm hoping you guys can tell me. I'm on the fence now, but if I floyd is going to cause me more stability problems, I'm going fixed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
