Ertu is the man. That thing looks awesome.
Yeah It really is a stunning peice of work honstly. Watching it be made from start to finish is amazing to see.
That looks amazing! Thinking of ordering one of these trems for a project.
Does anyone know if Ibanez pays Floyd Rose design "royalties"?
I believe the last of the Floyd patents expired, so Ibanez does not pay licensing fees anymore. My understanding is that’s why the LoPro has returned to the US market.
That is correct.
Hmmmmm this very interesting
I have no idea if Ibanez has its own patents on the Lo Pro design. Nothing stops someone from patenting an improvement to something that someone else has patented (they just would have trouble selling that improvement without licensing the initial patent).
I don’t believe that they do.
At least not on the older Edge designs.
Hot damn, that trem looks great!
And It is done!!!!
They even widened the first 2 saddles for me to put in up to an .86!!!!! These guys are amazing.
That is a thing of beauty.
String-to-string spacing the same as the 7-string Lo Pro?
its 75.6 mm. Just like the FX edge 3-8. Ill make it a bit more narrow but that is a comfortable spacing for me.
On the next one Ill go for .416 which is what a hipshot 8 string is.
I just realized, start to finish was almost a month. June 24th LOL!
I have a custom ordered for a Floyd Rose 8 and didn’t realize that the spacing was a touch wide (10.8mm instead of 10.75 like the 7-string).
I’m hoping that I can’t feel .05 mm (.35 mm overall), but if it drives me nuts I’ll beg Ertu to make me one like yours to narrow the spacing a bit.
EDIT hahaha I’m dumb. 10.8 string to string is 75.6 just like yours.
Yeah the floyed should be the same spacing.
I was just coming here to post about your own personal order, apparently lol. Cheers, bud! I for one am ecstatic to see a lo pro on the market!
