    Well its quite an unstable guitar.. one of my friend had it and when we used to play he used to tune it around 5 times in an hour.. it goes out of tune even with slight bends.. maybe his guitar has some issues in particular but i never liked 170DX after that..

    If you are buying a cheap guitar, you are better off buying a fixed bridge or strat type bridge. A cheap floyd rose will lose tuning too easily and will be quite a pain to gig with.

    The Yamaha has awesome build quality for the price.

    Just because they are not very renowned for their guitars, they do not charge you a lot to put their label on the instrument. My friend had a pacifica Strat look-alike guitar and it had a pretty good tone (if you like strats that is).
