Can you help me ID this guitar?

Hi fellows,

Can you help me to identify this one?

Is there a way to know the body wood?
What are the possible woods?
Is this Floyd Rose good?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers,
Ivo

Thank you very much for your help.

Do you know if these Japanese Kramers also have a maple body?
Is it a good Floyd?

Cheers,
Ivo

This looks mor llike a striker neck to me, being non-angled scratch_head

You can take the neck off and look at the wood in the neck pocket, might be possible to identify it from the looks.

Those trems usually work fine, but the tone is not quite as good as with a real floyd. They sound a bit tinny in comparison.
