ripped off (i think)

guys i think ive been ripped off
my new guitar has a floyd rose bridge, i bought the guitar from ebay as part of a shop the description says its is an official floyd but on closer inspection the engraving on the bridge reads

licensed under floyd rdse pats

the spelling mistake ^ here is exact to the engraving

is this right or not

of course is not right, you must be aware because a floyd rose system could be a pain in the ass if doesn't work o.k.. I think, before you buy a guitar, you should try to play it first, before you spend your money....

a floyd is not a pain in the ass, you just need to learn how to use it. not much can be wrong with it, if it's a QUALITY floating trem system.

if you buy a guitar of e-bay, you just can't try it. thats the downside

I see, not a really common guitar there. the saddle of the G-string is in a weird position, intonation and shit sounds good to you?

if its playing fine, don't worry too much about it man, some floyd copy's are just as good as the original.

Listen to BLS. He seems to know what he's talking about.

That guitar looks better for impaling people with rather than making music. If the seller said it was an orignal floyd rose, and it isn't, then you are entitled to a refund.
