    Bought this new Epiphone Les Paul Studio "Midnight Vine" today I think its Limited Edition not sure though. But it came with a Floyd Rose and it plays mighty fine.

    Thanks it was a pretty sweet deal as well. cheaper than it should have been I'm guessing. But I'm not one to complain with a little extra cash in my pocket. :D

    I'm a big fan of the LPs with Floyds...play them as often as possible!

    There's just something about a hot rodded LP with a Floyd/Kahler that reassures me rock 'n roll ain't dead yet...:slash:

    wow old thread here, since my last post I got this one...a 1986 LP Custom with Gibson branded Kahler. I dig it.

    Very sweet Custom indeed! I've heard the Kahlers are ultra smooth...is it like a recessed Floyd, where you can both dive bomb and skyrocket the pitch?

    According to the folks at Floyd Rose, OFRs used by large manufacturers (like Gibson) are made on one of two lines in Korea. Schaller only makes the bubble-pack versions for the aftermarket and a few OFRs for the smaller boutique builders.

    If I ever get another Les Paul (or maybe another guitar, period), it'll have be a LP with a Floyd.

    Preferably a custom.

    I have the LP Axcess and it has sustain like no other...
    Of all my other 16 guitars including my Steinberger GM2T, the Axcess
    is by far the best guitar i've ever played.

    Someone asked earlier in this post about how the Les Trem equipped guitars fit in a HSC, while my guitar is not a EPi or Gibson, its still a Les Paul shaped Turser and no it does not fit in either of my SKB Les Paul cases with the les trem on it. While my playing is most likely nothing compared to most or all who posted in this thread I do like the Les Trem, I picked it up when the original owner of the company that makes Les Trem's passed away to use on a different guitar(the epi BBLP) and wanted to try it on something cheap first.. Stew mac still sells them but the price is about $50 higher now, around 170 I think. Here's a pic...

    I just bought one also. It is a fabulous guitar. One the best Gibson has done in a long time.

    The Epi I posted earlier in this thread is now on Ebay but it isn't far off tonewise from the Axcess at all.
