    I misspoke. This neck is thin. The model above it has the thicker neck! I am a happy camper! It ticks all boxes. If sustain could be better with a brass block I will get one. Might even change entire bridge out. Still a bargain. It's $900 CDN not 2500. While I have no problem spending that and more on my LPs etc, if worth it, in this case I win at this price!!

    The Floyd Special. Built in Korea, dont care, but w zinc alloy instead of stainless amd brass. Given my number of guitars and limited gigs still, it won't get tons of use. If it gets suspect then I will change it. Gotta get the D Tuna on there!!

    Yup. Any FR that sits flat against body, no floating.

    You can do the D-tuna on a floating if you have one of the devices to lock the bridge so it doesn't float. Nuno Bettencourt and some others do it.

    HNGD ! Great guitar, love the color ! And that strap looks awesome too, I bet it's super comfy.
    And D-Tuna doesn't really work on a full floating FR, it instantly knocks the guitar out of tune. You need to either have a device to give it a "zero point" or turn it into dive-only.

    Looks fantastic my brother, and the well hung strap is killer too.
    Cheers

    It should have come with it. All WGs come with the D-Tuna standard, even the imports.

    Great guitars!

    Being from Regina I have an affection for that green. Does it have the maple cap with flamed veneer? Most importantly, how does it sound?

    Years ago I changed the zinc block of the FR Special in my Dean C350F to brass, didn't notice much difference other than less highs maybe, maybe. If I did it again, I'd change the entire bridge or leave it. We'll see when I swap the FR Special in my Squier Strat (don't laugh, it sounds awesome), to a Gotoh GE1996T.
