Licensed Floyds

If you generally play tremolos, there’s a good chance you’ve played some sort of licensed Floyd Rose in your lifetime.  Mr. Rose started the licensing process because there were simply too many companies trying to copy the patent, and suing every company would have been a time-consuming process.  


This is an ever-growing page, and I could turn this website into a large book if I’d cover every single licensed Floyd tremolo (there are a lot). Therefore,  I intend to discuss the more popular and interesting licensed Floyd Rose models that pertain to this website.
