Floyd Rose Rail Tail Tremolo – Narrow 2 1/16″ String Spacing (Modern)
For Strat Style Electric Guitars
The Floyd Rose Rail Tail Tremolo fits Fender Stratocaster style electric guitars with 6 point bridges. (Will also fit 2 point bridges with some drilling required)
The Rail Tail is a full contact, dive-only tremolo designed to retrofit with no modifications to your Strat; a clever design merging the feel and reliability of a hardtail with the flexibility of a tremolo system. Computer designed and precision-machined, the Rail Tail achieves maximum performance and stunning appearance without compromising comfort or feel. Its unique features allow for adjustability to fit a variety of guitar bodies and for an easy DIY installation.
Unlike the original tremolo design that rocks on a bevel located under the screw heads, the Floyd Rose Rail Tail tremolo uses a plate which rotates around a precision rail that is mounted directly to the guitar body. The plate cradles the entire rail with precision as if they were one unit improving sound quality and tuning stability. This union also creates a greater breakpoint allowing open strings to maintain pitch when bending another, much like a hardtail.
The tremolo plate consists of slotted string block mounting holes that not only accommodate the block’s installation but also allows the block to be positioned further forward for greater rotational range. This means diving up to 15 degrees more than conventional tremolo bridges. An advanced string block also consists of game-changing features: Mid-positioned tapered string holes assist in true string saddle contact. The Rail Tail also includes roller fitted saddles that work alongside the rail and string block. This entire assembly provides ultimate vibrational energy transfer from the strings to the guitar body resulting in better overall sustain and tonal qualities.
