If my Strat were my main/only guitar, I'd probably remove it and block the bridge. As it is, I keep it on for the rare occasions that I mess around with something Van Halen-ish, or get the urge to dial in some buzzy, high-gain, mid-scoop, quadruple rectu-fryer sound and noodle around to make me feel "talented". :leadguitar: Enough distortion and delay along with a trem bar can make almost ANYBODY sound like they know what they're doing on the guitar! :punk:

When I had my Squire, no matter how I tried...I couldn't get it to strum the strings at all :dunno::winkthumb:

Don't have one now and don't miss it{although I never really gave it a chance}

I'm new to the trem world. I just picked up a Custom 22 PRS which is a floating type. The jury's out as to how it reacts, but it has good reviews. For me, I found that it returns sharp, but I found that a drop of oil under each screw head of the knife blade is helping. Hopefully that's just a matter of adjustment. That and proper string stretching. Not stretching will throw you for a loop trying to figure it all out.

Anyway, I got it so I can use it occassionally. So far so good.

For those of you who've had the problem with the offtuning from using it, I heard that setting it up floating causes more problems because you can bend both up and down.

Avoid major divebombs!
