How do the following methods of keeping in tune compare?
Lets say, with a crap vintage style trem for extremely heavy divebombs, and other miscellaneous mind blowing whammy tricks:

1) Locking tuners with non locking trem
(I think when you do the divebombs the note will come up flat, and you have to give the whammy bar a quick raise or something to snap it back in tune, and vice versa)

2) Nonlocking tuners with locking trem
(same as above?)

3) Locking tuners with locking trem
(duh)

4) locking nut with non locking trem
(how about this?)

Yep, please contribute.

And to keep people contributing:

Locking trem with a locking nut.


Dude, I was asking how they compare, not which is best.
#5
Locking Tuners with Locking Trem for sure would be your best bet in staying in tune next imo would be locking tuners with non locking trem
#6
The problem is about locking tuners+nonlocking trem is the note coming flat after divebombing and sharp after raising the pitch. I know the way to fix it is to give it a quick slam in the direction opposite.

Does that happeN?
How about locking nut?
#7
i just do divebombs without locking tuners i experience no change in tune for a while but then again my trem is set flat on the body so it would get back quick.

I'd say that a hardtail with locking tuners would give you the best stability.
Posers are like punks, except they do it for fashion

and a earvana compensated nut for near perfect intonation up and down the fretboard
#11
oh and BTW a locking nut wont work to well with a non locking trem, since your guitar wont have fine tuners.

QUICK! How does a locking tuner with a nonlocking cheapo trem do?


I know a way to use locking nut without locking tuners.

How do I install a FR locking nut? Can I do that without drilling holes?

Make that a Tune-O-Matic with locking tuners and the Earvana.

Anyone answer please?


your going to route unless you like substantially high action and i mean high. just look at how far the routes go for locking nuts now put that on top of your fretboard imagine barring a F chord

I meant the capabilities of locking tuners and non locking trem.

that will do you wont be able to go out of tune if you trem is set up parallel to the body but if it isnt then you could experience some de-tuning
#19
Ahh, that's it, by parallel, do you mean the bridge is ON the body, or if I set it floating parallel(with the screws set so the bridge is parallel, but higher action), will it work too if it's floating parallel?
#20
by parallel the base plate just needs to be exactly parallel to the body doesnt matter how high it is off the body just needs to be parallel to it
#21
SO it can be 20 meters high, just so long it's parallel?

ok 2 questions, Phil, brace for it.

1) HOw can i check if it's prefectly parallel
2) why does it not stay in tune if it's not parallel?
#22
1) like said for strat trems the base plate where the saddles are on should be parallel to the body

2) dunno but really if you want the best its always best to have it parallel to the body.
#23
If I have it parallel without locking tuners, how well will it stay in tune

How about cheapo locking tuners and parallel bridge, floating at like...0.75 cm off the body
#24
lil bit floating is fine i have mine set like that without locking tuners on string that every goes out is my g string. parallel without locking tuners well unless you dont string it well enough you shouldnt be able to go out
#25
Well my bridge is pretty high, that's why my action is pretty high, remember? I have .015s to .070s :P and the action is 2 cm off the 12th fret.

So how about I set my bridge to 0.5cm high parallel? Because I am going to change to .011s (ARGH).

And by going of out tune, do you mean crazy divebombs and lifts?

how the **** can you play with 15's thats crazy ****. if your bridge is still parallel to the body than its alright. i can do maybe 2 divebombs then the g string just goes flat. lifts doesnt make me go out of tune

Yea, .015s to .070s, just plain crazy, I am going to change to .011s because my callouse are so thick when I masturbate I scratch my foreskin.

I can't find my D'addario .013s so .011s power slinkies are the way to go

Ah well, at least I will have a lower action, I don't remember how many times I have bled over my guitar from tapping and legato.

Somebody here care to explain my a parallel bridge stays in tune better?

yo Phil, what guitar do you have? Capa?

man that sucks you scratch your foreskin when wanking but imagine fingering a chick.

and when you have it parallel you have the equal force on both sides of the bridge. plus this way when you set your action its the most wisest so you dont have too much low and too much high. and its the natural zero point on all guitars

dont have a guitar too poor to own then
