This is for a buddys JS100 that I'm doing work on, so any info would be helpful.

Seems kind of pointless... I can just NOT USE the tremolo and it works the same way....

You obviously have no idea what the tremol-no actualy does.

LOL this

Yes, though since I just use it to lock the tremolo it's kind of a waste of money. I could always just stick 5 cents worth of wood in there and block it. If you want to be able to lock and unlock the tremolo though, it might be worth it.

I prefer to block it, Tremol-no's start to slip after a while.

Tremol-no's are not just for locking the trem. You have the option to look and unlock it at the turn of a screw. Pretty nifty if you ask me.

One thing you'll have to look into TS is that there are 2 different kinds of tremol-no. They both do the same thing, but are installed slightly different. You will have to find out which one is better for the guitar.

I dont actually have one, but I looked into them a while ago.
#9
Theres pin, small clamp and large clamp.
If you go to there website there is a chart that shows which one is recommended for the trem. The OFR has the pin recommended, however i would recommend the small clamp as the pins snap commonly.
#10
I know about the diff types, I was just looking for people who have first hand experiance with them.

I thought about the trem setter, but hewants to beable to use his floyd and have the ability to block it when he wants.
He originaly wanted to just block it, but I talked him into possibly getting the tremol-no so he could choose

Didnt like it.

it also ended up destroying the trem in a giant exlposion.

Also after a while of screwing and unscrewing you wear little bumps in the bar so it doesnt work properly either.

Waste of money.

i found mine very fiddly

i'd also say that it might not work so well with non-OFR type trems- not that it doesn't work, but on my gotoh the drop C didn't fit (i guess it has tighter springs)

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.

i should add that i'm terrible at setting stuff up- it might just be me who found it fiddly.

but yeah... i mean i found it just made everything a fair bit more awkward, for very few gains (if i'm massively changing tunings odds are i'd want a different guitar with a different gauge of strings, anyway... granted being able to lock it for double stops was pretty cool)

yeah, he is deff not a tech guy at all, he just plays the hell out of a guitar.

I was thinking the Tremol-no because it is soposedly easy to operate.

I think I'll just do the TremBlocker Tom sugested. Sounds simple enough for him.

yeah i found it the opposite. and while i'm no tech guy either, floyds don't normally annoy me that much.

And I pesonaly dont enjoy floyds at all. But then again I can count on 1 hand the amount of floyd setups I've done

They just take me a little longer than I like to take on a bridge set up. I go from a 30 min job to a hour long teter toter battle

once you get used to it you can sorta anticipate it a bit, which saves time

I've got one in a Highway One Strat that I've used for blocking the tremolo. After about five years, the thing is still rock solid. As for using it to stabilize a standard Fender Tremolo, it should work rather well. Since it slides along a fixed steel rod, it should smooth things out considerably. I don't know how well it would work for a Floyd. The only way to determine if it is what you want is to install one in your guitar and see if it does what you want it to do.

Good luck.
