hey guys. i'm thinking of buying a guitar with a floyd-like bridge called a Takeuchi. It's old from the 80/early 90's, and it's on a Peavey G-90. My friend says it goes out a little when you wail on the bar, but do you think with a pro setup, it'd stay in better tune? I read about the peavey G-90 with the takeuchi bridge, and it says it used to cost around 1000 brand new back in the 80s. So i was just wondering abou the quality of the bridge on it. Thanks guys.




ps..if this belongs in the electric forum..tell me and i'll move it. But since it's about the bridge, I figured I'd put it here.

but Rusty's bar might have been specially made for him. So it might be different than the stock ones they used on the peavey.


here's a pic. i found it on ebay. i don't know if you can get an idea or not, but it's worth a try.

no in an interview he said " it has just a stock low profile takeuchi bridge, nothing special just with lower fine tuners because floyde rose bridges get in the way of my picking"
