I am in the process of potentially developing a product to help individuals that have Whammy Bars (Floyd Rose, etc) on their guitars to make restringing easier. The product would keep the whammy in place as you restrung the guitar, so as you tune and tighten the strings the whammy would not pull forward.

It would be a simple product, nothing that has to be mounted to or screwed into the guitar, and it can come off after you are done stringing the guitar.

I know there are ways around this that work okay, but I am interested if anyone believes something like this, so you are not tightening springs and working to adjust the whammy bar, would help.

Thanks

Tightening springs? If you aren't changing gauge, why would you need to do that? WTF are you talking about?

I don't have a floyd, but I have heard of people just putting a ruler under their bridge before removing the strings. Just keeps the bridge in its place. Would your product do anything different?

Since when has the consumer ever known what they want? If you've got a product in mind and you believe in it, prototype and patent it, then show the market why they need it. Asking on a message board if people would be interested in some theoretical product we have no information about is pretty pointless.

I just rest my hand on the bar to slacken the strings and give easy access to the retaining bolt while I'm doing it. It's not difficult. Push it down, unlock the strings and stick the new one in. Tighten the bolt - done.
