    Default How old is this Floyd Rose on Mick Mars's guitar?

    On the current OFR, you don't see "Original" on them below the Floyd Rose logo, I couldn't even find old pictures of the "Original" logo either.

    This must be a really early fine tuner version? It doesn't look like it has the tension plate either and I've heard the old ones didn't have that plate.

    Original was put on them at some point in the '90s when Fender first acquired the rights to them. Original eventually disappeared again.

    Collared bar as well. Originals were screw-in with the hex nut on top.

    It does have the tension plate. Look at the dents under the bridge. You only get those from the rounded ends of the tension plate.
    You can also see the rounded ends.

    I don't imagine Mick would be using an OFR from the 80s any more. It'd be wore out by now.
