So I got my buddys guitar together. Focus 1000.
And the floyd arm bushing stops the floyd from being pulled back. It dives fine. Just no pull back. I've never had this happen before. How do I solve this? Here's a pic of it.

Is the pivot post straight? It looks like it's leaning a bit moving the trem forward.

Looks like a copy floyd there, or is it just the camera angle? Anyway it rests in a position more forward towards the pups then it should. You can just file off some wood there to make room for the arm assembly. A coarse wood file and half an hour of free time will do, no need for a router.

No it's a real deal old school floyd. I measured all my floyds and they are the same. however they sit back in the rout more on the rest of my guitars. Not sure why. because I know this guitar was made for a floyd. I gave it back to him till I figure it out. I don't own a router.

That treble post looks like its leaning.
There'd be no other reason for the lack of clearance for the coupler.

I am seeing leaning too. You can actually see space behind the post. I think this one is a good candidate for bushings and modern posts.
