    I have always loved the specs on the Torero SE, but never was a fan of the red or blue finishes. However I just found out that they made a jet white version in 2013 with black binding, so I am eager to buy/mod the hell out of it. I want to cut the chrome wherever possible, and make this guitar just black and white. I used Schaller Locking Tuners on my last SE, but I can't seem to find a 3x3 set in black. Also, does anyone know where I can find a black Floyd Rose that will be a direct drop in for the Torero and its 14" radius? Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

    I reckon these Gotohs would do the trick for tuners.

    I don't know a thing about Floyds, though.

    Sweet thanks sleary! Now the black Floyd Rose... I'm afraid it will be difficult finding a black one to match the exact specs of the SE version. Seems like there a lot of variables with Floyd bridges.

    Just curious why you require lockers when you have a locking nut? I had standard non locking schallers back in the day on a Kramer and once I locked em at the nut I could have cut the strings to the tuners and not make a difference.

    I didn't know the Grovers came in black. Sweet. They're the best.

    WEDGE I am new to the world of Floyd's, but am excited to learn. On a similar note, one of the most common SE mods is to change the nut. Are all Floyd nuts created equal? If not, is there a direct fit (black) upgrade for the Torero nut?

    Sleary will I have to shim the saddles to match the 14" radius of the Torero, or is that a standard drop in model?

    That's the model the Toreno comes with, my se cu24 has that Floyd as well....shouldn't have to shim

    Floyd rose or Prs customer service might be a good idea to get ahold of , just to make sure ....

    I bought an open box Cosmo Black (Black Chrome) Floyed Licensed Gotoh it was 75 dollars. And I have matching Gotoh tuners to complete the Cosmo Black make over.
