On the latest production runs of the Floyd Rose Original Tremolo, the "Made in Germany" stamp on the bottom has been removed from the base plate by the factory. If you purchase an Original tremolo from an authorized reseller without this marking, rest assured that this is still the same heat-treated hardened steel German-made Original Tremolo.

For easy identification of the FRO, look for the newer CNC-made Original saddles (with rounded inside edges) and new-style housing with integrated hex wrench adjustment.
