Looking for an original FRT 5 Whale Tail? Chances are you will be looking for a while. In the meantime, we put together this Tribute FRT 5 using an original Floyd Rose FRT 7 baseplate and our reproduction parts.
The FRT 7 model was made for a few years by Fernandes in the mid 80’s and was only available on the Japanese market. These baseplates are very similar in design to the FRT 5 Whale Tail that also features an offset logo and rounded string lock screw slots.
Tribute FRT 5 model features:
Original mid 80’s FRT 7 Baseplate
FRT 5 Style Saddles with T Blocks
Large Steel Sustain Block
1/4” Stainless Steel Trem Arm and Bushing
Brass Fine Tuners with Fine Diamond Knurl
