    How would bends work on that bridge, I wonder?
    Some original songs...

    And some cover tunes...

      looks strange, way too much complicated
      however it's probably gonna work

          It looks interesting but I wonder how sustain and sound will be affected.

            sorry i read the first page on the link and it lost me ????

            what exactly is the thing suposed to be doing for you.???

            whats the advantage of it over others ?

            im not sure i get what its about ,,,says it maintains tension , easier to press bass strings, yet notes still bend ? do they still raise in pitch when you bend them ????

            edit note - if the makers were smart theyd put up a video describing what exactly the thing is supposed to be doing... they have some video but none that discribe the thing

                  unless a major company picks them up for OEM hardware, i doubt this will catch on (or even do very well).
                  good deals: fuzztone, thefragile103, schecterc1lh, mr_goodbomb, 4nkam, twofoolsaminute, jackpotjewell, alecto, brianwahl, AngelofHop, KjStrat62.

                      does anyone remember how much the original floyd rose bridges were selling for when they first hit the market back in the day ???

                      im just saying that if it works better than the floyd locking system does then the price maybe reasonable or comparable to what floyd sold for when they first hit the market.

                        It looks akward, even for the guy doing the demo, to play. It would not be good for me based on that video. I think I like the bar if I am going to use a trem.

                          I think I once saw the prototype of the thing.

                          The unique feature is a separate "tremolo" arm to each string.

                              Yea because in theory a bend is playing out of tune. I also kind of wonder if those shock absorbers would mess with the vibrations getting to the guitar body and kill sustain.
