i recently heard that the tremelo units on a MIM Fender are bad and cause lots of problems, logicaly i said WTF?
is this true?
if so would a bigsby work on a strat?\
EDIT:i checked the specs it has a
Vintage Style 2-Point Synchronized Tremolo with Stamped Steel Saddles according to the fender website...

I have the vintage tremolo(6 point) on mine and it's works flawlessly... Definitely a hell of a lot better than the locking tremolo on my Ibanez.......

Well, I've played a bunch of MIM strats, and some of them went out of tune instantly. Some of them held up really nice. I was doing some medium level abuse things to the tremolos.

And yeah A bigsby strat, sounds crazy but yeah it'll work. You'll need to work hard on it though

I have a squier bullet that I can do a full dive on and it doesnt go out of tune,so it really depends from guitar to guitar

i used my whammy bar today for a few minutes, and did some abuse with it. It didnt really knock it out of tune at all, I hate tremelo bars though, i'll leave that stuff to Jimi, Frusciante, etc.
