Okay, so right now I'm considering getting this beast of a guitar , but I have some questions about the tremolo on it.

1. What could it be compared to? A Floyd, Kahler, Wilkinson, etc.
2. What's the range (how far could I dive bomb, if I could.)
3. How is to restring? Would you restring it like a Floyd?

And, as always, thanks in advance.

1. Probably closest to a Wilkinson, since it's a non-locking bridge. The JP guitars all have Schaller locking tuners.
2. Don't know (the one time I played a JP guitar, I decided not to use the trem) but I assume that it'd be similar to a Strat-style bridge.
3. You'd restring it the same way as any standard Strat-style guitar.

AFAIK It's like a wilkinson set to float.

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.

Ah, forgot to mention that. Thanks.


I know you can do some pretty decent divebombs with it. JP does so during Metropolis quite frequently on their last few DVDs.

So stuff like Slayer and Van Halen would be out of the question?

Depends how you set it up. If you set a WIlkinson bridge up against the body (non-floating), you won't be able to pull up on it but tuning stability is improved, tone and sustain is improved and the dive range is extended to be just slightly short of what a Floyd will do. It can certainly dive to the point where your lower strings go completely limp and stop vibrating. On the other hand if you set it up to be floating, a Wilkinson bridge will be able to dive only a little bit more than a normal Strat vibrato and it will only sustain as well as a regular Strat vibrato does, but then you can also pull up on it too. So pick your poison.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Not quite. You could pretty easily pull it off.
