Acoustic Tremolo Arm

Are there any completely acoustic guitars with tremolo arms? I want to see one.

Woah that's neat, just don't be trying to add one of those to your acoustic at home, most probably won't be able to hold that would it?

^ Different design. Go and try to do that to your Martin by yourself. It will be kinda difficult.

How about this?

Though to be honest a bigsby or something like a bigsby is your best bet.


EDIT:
Holy ****, why was this bumped?

Obviously, because someone (Hahutzy) was using the boards search utility (like they are supposed to) and found this thread because it is similar to something they were interested in. They had a question and asked it.

Duh

P.S.

That youtube video you provided doesn't show what Hahutzy asked for.
Hahutzy asked for pics / websites of a strat with piezo bridge...

or you could try a parker guitar, while not usually in every ones taste appearance wise almost all the models come with a pre-installed piezo, they're pretty nice guitars too, its one of the 3 brands im currently trying to go after but they aren't in my definiton of cheap (1,500 and up USD) but they do have great quality from what i hear

I know that, and I know that.

THE THREAD IS FROM 2 AND A HALF YEARS AGO!

He could have just started a new one.

What difference does that make?? The guy that bumped the thread wasn't around then.

Why make a new thread? That kinda defeats the purpose of the Search Utility...

Since were running witht his old thread.

\

Take a look at the manual up by the headstock.

Peavey made some acoustics with whammy bars built right into the classic style bridge.

I made one for one of my acoustic guitars, it sucked (string lift off the bridge). got carried away and made it a whammy and a B and G bender (had to cut the bridge). then I just tore it to the ground and rebuilt into a whole other POS.
