The customization and shopping are all done online via a comprehensive form that will let you pick the parts to build your bridge, nut and accessories.
The obvious advantage of this Custom Shop is you can build tremolos with a variety of parts and design combinations. Be it reliability or aesthetics, you can have a say on how important details of your tremolo bridge will come out. You can also use the online form to experiment on various designs before finally settling down with the design that you want to purchase.
The first step in building your Floyd Rose Custom Shop bridge is deciding on the parts and design of your bridge bass plate. A wide variety of options are currently available, including Chrome, Nickel, Black, Satin Chrome, Satin Pearl, Black Nickel, Gold, Vintage Copper and the premium option - Titanium. Next step would be the saddles where in you get the same material options.
Another important option is the type of Sustain Block, it gives you affordable alternatives like Brass, and expensive ones that include Stone, Titanium and Tungsten. The style and finish of the Trem arm is also customizable, you can go for new style, old style, push-in style, turbo trem and titanium. Bridge hardware and mounting studs round up the "Build Your Bridge" section.
To complement the bridge you designed, Floyd Rose Custom Shop also lets you "Build Your Nut", where you can select the materials for the Nut base, caps and accessories. The same type of material options for the Bridge section are available for the Nut section so you can match or mis-match the two as you prefer.
The company says that it will take 2-4 weeks for your custom bridge to be built and delivered after you complete your order. Visit the new Floyd Rose Custom Shop to try out their online form and get your personalized tremolo.
