I got in contact with Adam Reiver of Floyd Upgrades (FU) and he sent over a shirt for this week’s Free Shirt Wednesday submission. Heading over to his site, I see that Adam has been working with a crazy list of A-List guitarists and their Floyd Rose bridges for nearly 20 years and now is offering some of those upgrades and modifications to the public. When I say A-List.. it would include names like Slash, Vernon Reid, Eddie Van Halen, Mick Mars, George Lynch, etc. Not a bad list at all.
Floyd Upgrades has a form on their site where it you can create or build your own FU Bridge. You can specify bridge color, big block size, hardware, saddle inserts, saddles, springs, spring claw, locking nut and add a EVH D-Tuna if you want. On the site you can purchase the individual components as well to upgrade your existing Floyd. You can read about each upgrade component, and read reviews from others as well.
If you have a Floyd Rose bridge/trem system and looking for an opportunity to improve it, definitely check out Floyd Upgrades. You can learn a ton from their site, and also ‘like’ them on Facebook for important announcements.
Now, if you want to be featured on Free Shirt Wednesday.. it’s really quite simple. Send me a shirt, if it’s music related (ie: guitar builder, band, pedal builder, guitar shop, recording studio, etc) I’ll dedicate a blog post about your biz, band, etc. I’ll take a photo with my aging, slightly pudgy mug and post it. Great simple, cheap form of advertising. Still interested? Then check this page for more info
