What is the point of a Floyd Rose?
A Floyd Rose lets you lock the strings in place at two points on your guitar – at the bridge itself, and at the nut. The bridge features locking saddles, which the strings are inserted into. These are then fixed into place via tightening bolts on the back of the bridge, which are adjustable with an allen key.
