Why not shrug ?

This looks gorgeous. Besides the Bigsby this would imo be the nicest Lumie.
Practice cures most tone issues.

Defo not factory, looks good but I prefer the natural maple & walnut bodies.
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Pic #6 is that we call Petillo fretwire or something? Looks very triangular.

Nope, just sanded that way on the edges. The pyramid wire is a really sharp triangular shape.

Never tried them either, IMO quite a senseless invention. They advertize them for more accurate intonation, but it's simply a bogus claim.
