If I really don't use a trem that much, is it worth the money and loss of sustain to get one? How often do you all use your trem?
Also, what are your thoughts on whammy pedals?

I assume you're playing just open strings, so not to scratch your frets.

depends how much you're going to use the trem to be honest. i know that probably doesn't help much...
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

I'd say it's not worth it. You can replicate a trem (except for dive bombs) with bends. I have one on my strat, and don't use it all that often. If you really don't plan on using it that much, get a whammy pedal.

You remind me of this guy.

Depends if you're gonna use the trem for phrasing/extreme pitch changes, and how much.

It's a floating bridge. It doesn't sit on the body of the guitar but floats in a little cavity. On double locking floating trem systems (which is pretty much what most people mean when they say trem), the strings don't go through the body, but just get clamped in at the bridge. At the nut end, they get clamped there too. This system lets you whammy either up or down without your guitar going out of tune.

When it comes to trems, if your a beginner, youl love it for the first week, then get sick of it, and realise that you sound crap when your using it, youl then pull out they whammy bar and never use it for 5 years until your good, then you will start enjoying it again.

I'd say go hardtail and maybe in the future consider purchasing one
