    Default Baseplate Stamped "Floyd Rose Original?"

    Does anyone know what era these were used, or what specs. etc. ?

    I've never seen one before and google only turns up one example of a right-handed vibrato with this stamping - though a few retailers show left-handed models so-designated. One thread I found on another forum indicated a similar discovery and yielded the only picture I've been able to locate of an RH Floyd stamped 'original' (with the mild suggestion these are possible fakes.) Any ideas? Is this legit?

    ...So after some furious googling, these were apparently on MIJ Hot Rod Reissue Stratocasters. That still doesn't tell me much about how it compares to any old Original Floyd but...

    Itís legit and authentic,

    Thatís from the era when Fender was the distributor for Floyd Rose branded products and accessories. I have an identical one on my USA Floyd Rose Classic Strat. 27 years after Fender fitting it on the guitar itís still in great shape save a bit of pitting where my hand rests.
