Is The 89f Trem System A Good One ?

Recommended Posts

is the 89f trem system a good one ?

 

i  have a new 89f on the way coming from Sweetwater.com .

the only trem i have ever used is the one on my Fender mim Strat.

 

i was doing a little web surfing and i am starting to get the impression that

a lot of "licensed by" Floyd Rose trems aren't very good.

 

is the FR system  on the JTV 89f a descent one ?

So far so good, just got mine 2 weeks ago and was a bit stiff. After continuous playing springs feels much better now. Great guitar.

I suspect the "licensed by" haters are more cork sniffers than basing their knowledge on actual experience. That's just my opinion.

thanx for the response guys...

i can hardly wait for it to get here....

 

as long as i'm here , i might as well ask about the action and playability...

i really like a low easy action ..... can this guitar be set up like that ?

You will be very happy with this tremelo system.  Very robust and responsive.  The guitar should show up setup with very low action.

My 89F just arrived yesterday and the action is a bit too low on some of the strings!  (Slight buzz on the B if played at the fourth fret, and the high E above the 12th) Time to learn how to adjust the saddles on a floating bridge...

Yes mine showed up the same way.  Adjusting the bridge is quite easy so don't worry too much about it.  I would not try and adjust individual saddles (if you even can)
