Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

yer i thought it was hillariously overpriced too - i guess they were targetting pro's with that huh. hows your stagg going i've modded the crap out of mine and it's not half bad.

I don't think an LP is traditionally what you'd call a divebombing guitar so it's looking bleak on that front.

i did find this http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=9999 but the fact that it's a studio edition and a cheaper guitar might not help your cause if you're looking for that almighty be all end all guitar. however as a second guitar it doesn't look horrible.

i mean i just prefer to use an actual tremolo instead of a pedal

lol right! i thought u meant u were getting a les paul and wanted a trem for it. for the record it's called a tunomatic bridge, incase you ever have to ask questions about it again. there's no real way to get a divebombing trem on it without buying a stets - and for that guitar it's not particularly worth it as you could buy a divebombing guitar for the price of the stets.

if you do want bridges in teh uk for your guitar for whatever reason (and any other hardware upgrades for it) http://axesrus.com/ is a great uk site with really good prices and free delivery.

the kahler is a trem that can go on a lespaul and do divebombs

Simple. It's the amp. Getting EVH tone out of a Twin Reverb is as likely as Nazis supporting jews.

you're simply not going to find an inexpensive trem that can do drastic dive bombs and stay in tune that doesn't require routing for a Les Paul.

dont get a bowen handle, they dont hold tune worth a damn, get a strets bar, they are like 300 bucks american so 160 english i guess, you dont have to cut on your guitar at all and they hold tune pretty well, getting some locking tuners would be good though, for any trem really.....
