The Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo, or simply Floyd Rose, is the first locking tremolo arm for a guitar of its kind. Invented in 1977, Floyd Rose gained popularity in the 1980s through influential guitarists like Eddie Van Halen, Neal Schon, Brad Gillis, Joe Satriani, and Steve Vai, who used its ability to stay in tune even with extreme changes in pitch to invent new guitar licks. Its tuning stability comes through the double-locking design that has been widely regarded as revolutionary; the design has been listed on both Guitar World magazine's "10 Most Earth Shaking Guitar Innovations" as well as Guitar Player's "101 Greatest Moments in Guitar History 1979-1983".

The FCH saddle provides for vastly increased dynamic range, sustain, and pitch stability by utilizing Jeff Babicz's unique 'e-CAM' saddle assembly, which replaces the conventional twin set screw system typically employed to transfer string resonance to the body of the guitar. The design also allows for unprecedented adjustment and locking capabilities; after adjusting the extremely precise individual string height and individual string intonation settings, the entire saddle assembly then locks in place for total stability.

The Power Pins™ system increases bridge-to-soundboard contact, amplifies and improves tone and resonance, and makes the string replacement process quicker and simpler. A shallower string break angle on the saddle noticeably eases string action. The bridge plate is also protected from string-groove damage. No alterations to the instrument are required; Installation is as simple as removing the existing pins, placing in the Power Pins, and securing them from the bottom of the saddle with the included nut and washer.
