    Well, it is super pretty, for sure. I would guess it is great for headless instruments, too.

    Read my mind. Do you suppose it's something to compensate for palm muting to level the tremolo?

    I've watched the video twice. Still don't understand what it's trying to accomplish.

    the big thumbwheel adjusts the overall tension on those little spring loaded posts, which are there to make this trem floating but with a bit more stability so you don't go out of tune when palmmuting or with doublestops.

    to me, it's just a lot of extra junk that can break down.

    Somehow I didn’t get that the posts were spring loaded. Makes more sense now. So it’s basically a more complicated Trem Setter.

    What it really does is what happens when you screw the two claw springs screws in or out of the body with a Floyd, only with their wheel you don't ever need a screwdriver and it's much more precise, It doesn't do anything to the spring-loaded posts that hit the body, that's a dif adjustment...

    Never even heard of it. I will do some reading, but at first glance it appears to be a solution in search of a problem.

    Really what it offers is to take some inconveniences and eliminate some of them and the others it makes much easier to do and without needed tools.

    Lile if your spring claw needs to be adjusted which needs a crosshead screwdriver to do BUT the CLS trem to do the same thing you just turn the big wheel on the block and bam you're done...

    besides all that I just think it looks really good, And yes I know that is the last thing you should be thinking about when buying something like this...

    BUT for now, I'm sticking with what I have because it is working so dam good...

    I wonder if it lets you tune to drop tunings and still stay in tune?
    (I didnít watch the video link)

    For me, thatís the biggest drawback to ANY floating trem. I need my guitars to be able to play in a couple of different tunings without the need to switch guitars.
    All of my current Floyd guitars are blocked so I can drop tune but Iíd sure like to have a versatile floater too.
