Floyd Rose and Graph Tech are teaming up to create the first authentic Floyd Rose Tremolo System loaded with Graph Tech’s Ghost loaded saddles.

Graph Tech’s ghost loaded saddles contain custom engineered piezo crystals. Graph Tech Ghost saddles completely encapsulate the pickup in their renowned String Saver material, making it impervious to the elements. String Saver saddles also give you a more balanced tone across the audio spectrum when compared to metal saddles, with crisp highs, warm mids, and deep bass— they don’t have the 2 KHz spike that metal saddles are known for, giving the tone more balance and dimension. Also, the saddles don’t just utilize any piezo crystals; Graph Tech’s crystals are designed specifically to work within the guitar frequency range. The pickups are individually calibrated for even string to string; they also dramatically reduce string breakage.

In combination with a Graph Tech Acousti-Phonic Preamp, your electric guitar can produce a rich, authentic acoustic guitar tone at the flick of a switch. The saddles can also be used with the Graph Tech Hexpander Preamp, adding a MIDI interface to your instrument, which in combination with a pitch-to-MIDI converter will create virtually endless possibilities of sounds that you can produce with your Floyd-equipped guitar.
