Non-Recessed Floyds

Recommended Posts

The Washburn that I am currently redoing was an non-recessed Floyd, and it dented and marred the finish. I had to sand the dents out, they were so deep that moisture and heat wouldn't raise them. I am either going to fill the trem cavity and use a TOM or Bigsby, or retrofit a Gotoh/Wilkinson trem assembly.

I don't like Floyds to begin with, but if you are goin to put onr on, rout the recess and use the cork/rubber to protect.....

Good luck!!!!! :D

Had it on a basswood body. first made little dents, then when the finish cracked over the dents, I ran water-thin super glue into the cracks. That hardened up the dented/cracked areas. Don't think it got any worse after that, plus you can't even tell, unless you look real close, but if you're going to look that close at a used musical instrument, you'll find flaws like that all over.
