im having a hard time finding any fender strats with locking trems on musiciansfriend.com or samash.com.

i just want to find one from an online store so i can see the stats and price range (i cant even find a rose equiped strat on the fender website, so maybe they dont come like that from the factory?)

so any links would be awesome.

plus, does anyone have any experience with floyd rose strats? is it worth it?? Iron Maiden sparked this intrest haha.

they are sort of a rarity. The Sambora strat had one and the Maiden strat has one, but other than that, I can't think of another strat I've seen with one that wasn't modded. You might want to look into something like www.Warmoth.com. They can custom make you a strat body (they are licensed under the fender patent), and make it so that it accommodates an OFR. It might be sort of pricey, but I think it will be pricey anyway you cut this hombre...that is if you stick to the fender thing.
