The Rockinger Black Box.
Still allows full float use of the trem but will act as a stop if you break a string live etc. it for changing strings one at a time.

Or this...same thing, different design.

Will check that one out. I have many a guitar with a floating Floyd. Thanks for the heads up.
If you're having one of those days where everyone is on your case and is just getting on your nerves, it's probably not everyone else

Hi,


I often see people do a tremolo on a chord in their solo.
What kind of chords can use for such things? For example in the minor swing?
I have no idea what kind of chords to use in solo and everytime I try it sounds bad.

Most trems won't pull every string evenly, but generally I like going up from the major 7th (just the one note) into the tonic of the key (chord) or down from the minor third (note) to the tonic chord. Works pretty well for me.

Wow, gone a long time and I don't have the So Cal anymore but those are set up to be pretty much drop only, and no, I didn't overtighten the springs, I've been using Floyds since before most of you were born.  No difference between tightening the springs until it rests flat on the body vs using a stopper or block, the tension is the same to offset the string tension, it's a simple physics thing.

The EVH and Music Man Axis guitars are made for drop only too, the bridges rest against the body.

The Steinberger Trans-Trem is the only "Transposing" tree I know of. 

I have had a mixd bag of experience with Floyds.  Not my thing.  I could live with a dive bomb only setup.

Kahler made on that locked/unlocked itself.

Was that the Kahler "Pro" back in the day?
