    I'm looking at one of these online and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about any routing it may have for the Floyd. Basically I want to know if you can pull up on it as well as push down. I don't see any obvious routing behind the trem, but I don't know if that necessarily means there's no room to pull up.

    I just heard back from the seller. Apparently this model has no routing behind the trem and there is little-to-no room for pulling up.

    I had a Floyd Strat, bridge humbucker some years back. I'm not sure of the year, but it may have been a bit older than 2001. That one worked pretty well either way.

    Yeah, those are top mount. They sit flat real nicely on the top. One of these days I’m gonna pick one up.
