    A shame indeed.
    Got my first decent saxophone from there in the late 70's.

    I'm with Wolz. If it's a decent player it will become naturally reliced.

    I'd just tape off the (edit) fretboard either side of the frets and go at it with steel wool.

    Floyd Rose on ebay

    In some circles 'Floyd Rose' get's a bum wrap.
    So you'd be seeing some cheap one's doing the rounds eh?

    I ended up using India ink instead.
