    Hotrod CE-22 - to Floyd or not to Floyd?

    I've really been enjoying my hotrod CE-22 that I built over the last year: SAS neck with birds, Dragon I's, Sweet Switch, Tremol-No, etc. The problem is that as much as I love it, I'm TOTALLY jonesing for a guitar with a Floyd.

    So here's the conundrum - should I send it to the PTC for a Floyd, move it and get a Floyd loaded axe like an Axis or a Charvel, or just keep it and get over the Floyd jones?

    I'm just not sure which way to go here...

    I don't always play PRS guitars but when I do, I prefer a Custom 22 Soapbar. Rock hard my friends...

    Don't do it, that's a great guitar the way it is. What's the deal with people wanting Floyd's on PRS? I have been doing bottomed-out dive bombs with my CE for twenty years and never had a problem with tuning issues, I could see it if they made a tonal improvement though.

    Why don't you go to a big-box guitar store that offers returns, I bet you will get over the Floyd jones in thirty days, if not... go for it.

    You have a beautiful guitar, please don't do a mod that can't easily be taken back...

    Wanna trade for a USA Peavey Wolfgang with a Floyd Rose???

    I would change the brassblock of course but im sure you all are tired hearing that by now ..Cool guitar!
    I de-modded my CU22 soapbar and made a factory spec setup.Im in love again.I very much believe now PRS guitars are perfect as they are.

    I think sending that CE-22 to the PTC is a great idea. If you give the tremolo a workout, they stay in tune better than a non-locking tremolo (in my experiences). Live life by your own rules and go for it.
