How are the tremelo bars on these? What are its limits?

Can someone give me a video that shows me the extent and range of it?

Thanks.

They're simply for vibrato effects. If you go up or down too far you risk making it go out of tune majorly since there is no locking nut.

C'mon, man. We're just kidding. We all know that drummers are important.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

So, then cannot do things like divebomb without seriously going haywire (tuningwise). And you calso can't do pull ups with it?

I think that the Tremonti model has routing behind the trem to allow it to handle dive-bombs.

It's a sick guitar. I want one.

Man I would post a pic right now but I would so get the ban hammer.

Anyway ts from what I've read the PRS trems are highly regarded though I don't know if you're talking about those featured on the SE models or the US made models. But ummm they could do a divebomb sort of effect (not as great as doing it on a floyd rose obviously) and the amount you can pull up is also limited compared to a non-recessed floyd rose.

The standard trems are pretty much like any vintage trem range-wise, but believe me when I tell you they're some of the most (if not the most) stable trems I've ever played. The range isn't much better than that of a Strat, but sure it's 10x more stable and comfortable.

And as BurningStarIV said, the Tremonti model is basically the same but with a deeper cavity, so it can go up too.

PRS is releasing a new model late this year or early next i think. it's an SE model with a floyd trem and EMGs. haven't seen any pictures, but you can find some information on it around the web. if you're willing to wait a little while. you can preorder on a couple sites, though! it's called the PRS SE Torero.
