    The title says Floyd Rose but I see a really expensive guitar routed out for an Edge Zero II?

    Swapping for an RGD2127Z wasn't an option?

    Looks like a solid job though. Congrats!

    Hi,I think it so too,but it was so hard to look for OFR7 or maybe Ibanez Edge/Pro/LoPro in Indonesian guitar store,I have to order it via ebay,but with a few upgrade especially Japanese Ibanez tremolo spring this thing is good enough,thanks for the comment

    I want to hate it but you did a really clean job and it's your guitar. Curious on how the back looks though

    Superb work, looks pretty clean :agreed::agreed:

    I'd just worry about not being able to use the full range for adjusting the intonation on the low B string.

    Yeah man thanks for sharing,after the route my luthier was concern about that too,lol,but after all the setup including the intonation setup,the low B is in the actuall intonation,so I won’t worries anymore \m/

    Super good job!
