Whats the difference between a double locking tremolo and single locking tremolo? I was looking at a guitar with a single locking tremolo and I wondered what the difference is. Thanks.

I think they are referring to tremolo and nut locking mechanisms when saying "double," thus a single locking trem would just be the tremolo with a standard nut.

Double locking locks at the bridge and the nut.
Single is one of those two, usually the nut but sometimes the bridge (see Chris Broderick's custom Ibanez)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Single locking trems have locking nuts. Double locking trems have locking nuts and a lock at the bridge.

Double locking: pain to tune, change tuning, change guage, change intonation, but will hold tuning and will be worth it if you use it enough

Single locking: all of the work with none of the payoff.
