Hi,

I need to install (or buy a guitar with) a Tremolo/Whammy. I am looking for something that can help me get those high pitch sounds like in the Intro to the first Bullet For My Valentine album or the last not in the solo to Afterlife (A7X).

So, if you know what it is I am looking for please help me. I am interested in any Tremolo/Whammy as long as it can do that. Some say Bigsby are bad for this (which is cool, they look horrible, but they are easy to get installed) and some that Floyd Roses are the only ones that can do that.

So I am a bit lost on this topic. Any help appreciated.

Yeah you're pretty much looking at a Floyd Rose for this. A Bigsby won't ever do this stuff.

I've never really used a Floyd Rose but I can say that Bigsby will not do what you want. And they're a pain in the ass to restring. You have to have three hands to do it.

However, Bigsby looks cool.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Shame, I would like to install it on a Dean Cadillac... I don´t really feel like carving out a hole and all.

I'd never recommend retro-fitting a FR, just a buy a guitar that can do it.

FYI, it's not really tremolo. That would be fluctuations in volume, not pitch.
