Quote from: notnomiistakes on January 07, 2012, 01:12:05 PMI just spoke to my friend who did it and he never lubed. I think he just watched the video and forgot to do it. I was totally impressed with his strat. curious to know how it works on yours when you do it. went to super-vee I'll consider that when money starts flowing in again. question --- does it have crosstalk. For example if you pluck the low E string and while the note is ringing bend the B string (just bend not pluck the B) at the same time does the pitch change on the low E string? thanks
Quote from: musicman65 on January 07, 2012, 09:48:43 PMAny floating tremolo system that balances with a block and spring arrangement is going to "bow" forward on bends because the overall balance and tension increases with the bending action. This causes all strings to go flat during the bend. I use the old "tremsetter" device that used to come with the Strat Deluxe to eliminate this issue. Works like a champ with any stock style trem.bd

Quote from: aliensporebomb on January 07, 2012, 08:53:32 PMI do want to try one of the dual locking models but the improvement in resonance and sustain with the Bladerunner was intriguing so I just had to go and try it. It's a bit of a late christmas gift anyway so....more when it arrives.

Quote from: musicman65 on January 10, 2012, 01:18:38 PMThe double locker Super-Vee is a no-comprimise solution when tuning stability is the goal. It requires a single allen wrench for string locking and another for intonation. A tiny one adjusts string saddle height. I only carry the locking wrench and it rides in a tiny hole cut in the lining of my leather guitar strap on the end nearest the bridge. Btw, the cost is about the same as an Original Floyd Rose last time I looked.Since the VG99/GR55 has alternate tuning, I only unlock to change a broke string or new strings.Here's something cool about Floyd-style locking bridges....did you know you can repair a string that breaks at the bridge in 60 seconds using the old string? just unlock the nut, unwind a few wraps from the tuner post and reinsert the broken end in the saddle vise. Retune, relock, play.For that reason alone, I love a locking trem!bd
