I just spent 30 minutes trying to find an online retailer that sells the OFR. It seems that none of the big mailorder places carry them anylonger. I found Carvin but their selection fo nut sizes limited. I find it strange that they have all but dried up.

As much as I hate to say it, Ed Roman's web site still has the best online prices for an OFR.
$149 for a Chrome one and you pick the nut size.

Yeah, besides Carvin, Ed Roman does actually have nice prices on Floyds.

I got lucky a while back, I guess. I got a brand new black Floyd (bridge, saddles, claw, springs, everything but the nut) for $100.00 plus taxes to put on my Model 2. It had been in the store for a couple of years.
