Taken from the original design specs of 1984, Floyd Rose has put together the "1984" tremolo system that recaptures the vibe and excitement from that era. The "1984" system is a true-to-the-original reissue that features brass fine tuners, old style housing and locked in swing arm, bridge mounting wood screws, and a fat solid brass block for incredible tone and sustain. Available in a variety of nut sizes that will fit practically any electric guitar, the tremolo kit contains the bridge, springs & claw, wood screws, and all hardware necessary for installation.
The Original 1984 Tremolo has a 10" radius out-of-the-box. A factory-installed shim under the center saddles can be removed, bringing the radius to a flatter 12". To match different radii, the individual saddles can be shimmed with either saddle shims (available on the web) or using copper or aluminum tape.
Please note: The "Made in Germany" stamp has been removed from the current production run of Original Tremolos. 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 Original Tremolo.
