7-string Floyd Rose trem option retired. [Edit: also on 6 string carved top models]

According to Mike over on FB, since the Hipshot trem's release, that option completely eclipsed the sales of the Floyd Rose on the 7-strings.

No word on what it means for the LPM7.

The 6-string Original Floyd Rose (they used the imported Original 1000 Series on the 7s) is still available, seemingly unchanged on the models on which it's offered.

[Edit: also, no Floyds in the carved top lines]

Update: seemingly retired from the 6- string carved top models, too.

And Solo. It was removed from the Vanquish a while back, too.
