Hey hey im looking at a new guitar and have never played with a whammy bar so i need to know what is the best trem for dive bombs and so on.

OFR in my opinion. Stays in tune no matter how much you beat on it and its built like a
tank. Ibanez edge pro is nice too

it's personal preference; once you hit a certain quality, it's really which you prefer the feel of. also, a wilkinson could also probably be used for divebombs. it really depends what you're after.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

+1; there are plenty of quality trems out there that are neither OFR or double locking.

It all depends on what you want to do with them and which you prefer in terms of feel.

Best locking trem, would definately be out of the Edge/Lo-pro Edge, Edge pro, ZR, OFR, Schaller FR and the Kahler trems (no idea on steingberger ones or the Edge Zero or ZRII yet)

However I think the wilkinson trem is a very good one.
Mine's never been knocked out of tune, yet I do things on it that are considered "Too much" for a non-locking tremolo system, it has the ease of a "Vintage" tremolo, is almost as good "whammy" wise as a decent locking tremolo and is very flexible, if you want to use it, you can go nuts, if you don't, you can just leave it, or you can just wangle it every once in a while.

The ZR will never go out of tune. Ever. The only time I even touch my tuner is when I change strings. Also, its pretty difficult to break strings on them.

Yeah the ZR the only thing is that you doing get as much range...but supposivly its worth it

Wilkinson is decent. OFR is best along with the Kahler Floyd copies.
