^Like he'd know... That guys queer. Not to mention doesn't even play good music anymore. [/rant]
The power of your example is far greater than what you say.
#7
that only adds to the funny

so what we're looking at here is a fancy locking mechanism on your tremolo?
#8
^It blocks off your tremolo...
Pieces of wood probably work better still.

#9
Nah i would pick this over a block of wood toxicity ^^, not only will it stop it, but its line an on/off switch for ur trem. U can have it block both ways, just one, or none at all

A resounding "About damn time" from me too.

They have some flaws, but I have to say, I've been waiting for this beast for some time now, and doubted it would ever see the light of day.

I am contemplating buying one of these for my Ibanez, but I am not sure if I will or not.

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.

Could you install this on a Les Paul with a Bigsby? There arent any springs in the back...


EDIT: Nevermind, I realized that was a stupid question. But what kind of guitar was the guy in the video (The one playing the guitar that had the tremol-no on it, doing all the playing, and wearing sunglasses) have? I know it's some kind of Ibanez, but what model?

The guitar Rob Balducci is playing is an Ibanez J-Custom RG-ARCH, and the guitar Kevan is playing is an Ibanez J-Custom RG-ART.

Yes it will work on a showmaster, it will work on most strat trems. It will actually work on pretty much everything except Steinbergers, Bigsby's, Wonderbar, and a couple of the Kahler top-mount systems. In the FAQ it clearly says, "If you've got springs in the back of your guitar, the Tremol-No will probably work on it."

Kevan says "Tell the guys I said thanks and that if they have any questions they can hop on the ALL NEW Tremol-No forum (it'll be up in about an hour) or they can email me."

Straight from Kevan, the inventor.

I'm gunna order 3 of those!

How useful are they for 2-point bridges? A hardtail mode would be nice, but it's assumably the C-Clamp or whatever is only useful with a Floating?
haha

Ordered one.

I expect this quasi-mythical guitar accessory to be made from a unicorn horn and the screw mechanisms fashioned from leprichaun gold.

In fact, for a wait of about a year and 44 quid, I DEMAND it.

Edit: if its good, though, I'll need another.

awesome, we can always rely on you to take the pluge on new untested stuff, mark!

let us know what it's like. I'll need a few if it's any good, lol.

the only problem i can see with it, is that the whole argument about not being out of tune if you break a string only applies if you had the foresight to be in dive-only or hardtail mode before breaking said string.

But it definitely seems like an improvement. i mean, you could have it in hardtail mode for the entire song, then go to full floating for the solo, etc. Or if you have a bit with unison bends, go to hardtail mode, then switch for a bit of whammy...

Had to be done.

That is the thing: the going out if you break a string. Which your more likey to do while yanking yer wammy (he he).

The design looks like it does what it says on the tin. Its just that there are some things not on the tin that would be nice. Ah well. It cant do everything.

nah, it's not magic. You need to balance it for use in floating mode.

exactly. The fact that it doesn't have extra springs is cool, IMO, since i like my whammy to be loose (), but obviously that means that some things (like full-floating mode) basically aren't improved at all...

still, if it does what it says on the tin, and isn't too hard to fit, I'll probably get one.

Are they available on the UK allparts site yet?

@isan:

you could set the tremolno so that the trem is level, lock it and tune up, and treat the guitar as a hardtail.

ah, pwnt!

i thought isan was asking if you could tune it in hardtail mode, and then switch to fully-floating and it'd still be in tune. I'm not certain, but I assume you wouldn't be. Presumably you need to set it up for fully floating mode just like a normal floyd.

the advantage of the hardtail mode is that, if you were in a gig, you could change strings quickly and keep it in hardtail or dive-only mode, so you didn't have to bother with trying to balance the damn thing....


of course, if you only break one string, and swap it with a string of the same gauge and brand, it should be near-as-dammit balanced anyway in floating mode, once you get stringed up and in tune...

Hmmm.


the advantages as I see it.

(a) if you break a string while you happen to be in dive-only or hardtail mode, you're still in tune.

(b) palm muting won't put the bridge sharp in dive-only or hardtail modes.

(c) you can change tunings without having to balance, as long as you're willing to stay in dive-only or hardtail mode.

(d) in dive only and hardtail mode, you can do unison bends etc. without having to bend both strings.

(e) you could probably use a d-tuna, again in hard-tail and dive-only modes.

I suspect (c) is what'd do it for me. I'm already used to the palm muting and unison bends, so that isn't really a concern for me.
