i'm trying to find a bridge that i can't describe so well the best example i have found (i think is being used) in this picture: http://www.flickr.com/photos/matthewfield/2402511400/
same guitar: http://www.flickr.com/photos/megownsengland/463175376/

essentially i would say it is a tremelo that you use just by applying pressure with the heel of your hand, or something like that. does anyone know any guitars that use these or where i can buy one? the guitar in the picture is a wick custom, but those are $3500 and i am wondering what other options i might have or what it's called.

thanks

Sorry, that's the first I've ever seen of them...
Won't you only be able to take the pitch up though?

EDIT: I guess you could pull the back up to lower the pitch?

There's this kid on Youtube who can show you how to bend notes without a whammy bar, so you don't need one- shocking!

I guess you're looking for something similar to the K7, right? Well, you probably wouldn't be able to bend lower. If anything, just go for a conventional trem- it's not going to hurt you, unless you're Pete Townshend.

i know i don't need one, i am just used to bending notes by using the heel of my hand to press between the bridge and tailpiece of my les paul. if i can get something like that i'd want to use it on other guitars but if not i will just go for a tremelo arm

You could always do that with a floyd rose

I was lampooning a lame video of a clueless kid who thinks every guitarist under the sun doesn't know how to bend.

What you could do is get something with a strat-style trem and set it so it's 'rising up' from the body quite a bit. That'd give you the same sort of thing that the Modest Mouse dude has.

Get a normal trem system, take off the bar, and set the bridge a bit higher than flush with the body. It'll work pretty similarly.

Well I'd say just get a normal trem system...
If you don't need to use the system for a vibrato though, I believe digitech has a pedal, but I have no experience with it.
