Everybody says that a tremolo bridge, especially a Floyd Rose, figuratively sucks sustain (true) and tone (subjective) out of your guitar. It makes it sound thin and tinny. But can this fault become a tone improvement? Perhaps it can make notes sound clearer and add note separation. So, can a tremolo (Floyd or otherwise) improve your tone in some cases?

It doesn't always kill your sustain or tone...

It's just what people assume, after reading on forums like this.

Yes, VIBRATO unit's can, Tremolo is the act of volume increasing and decreasing quickly, I think?

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

You are correct about vibrato and tremolo. The whammy bar on the guitar is actually vibrato. Tremolo is the rapid decrease/increase of the volume on the signal.

You know what I mean! I said tremolo to dispel confusion. Come to think of it, I should have just said whammy bar

depends on what you're after, really. you probably get a bit less sustain out of a floyd (though a quality one with a good sustain block should have decent sustain), but for some things the tone can be an improvement. I mean, I have a bunch of hardtail guitars, and I love them, but they can sound a bit brash for my liking at times. trems have a bit of a softer, bouncier tone.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Unless you’re holding a lot of long notes with no vibrato the drop-off in sustain from a trem bridge is unlikely to be relevant. Now if you play a lot of stoner/doom metal I guess you should think about it.
