I could care less. I never use it. I might as well play fixed bridge guitars if I don't already. 7 25.00%
I use it but am content with a normal (down only) tremolo 3 10.71%
I'd rather kill myself than play something that doesn't have a Floyd Rose-type floating trem. 11 39.29%
I'll play whatever; tremolo is not a deciding factor when I choose a guitar. 7 25.00%

I figure my next guitar will either have a fixed bridge or a floating trem, because there's no reason to get one with a normal tremolo; I might as well just get fixed.

So now I'm trying to figure out if I don't use my whammy bar because I can't do totally rad Vai type stuff with it, or if it's because I just don't care.
OK look. Your poll. THIS is my response to it.

Some fixed bridges also has the fine tuning option. Heck, go with the Evertune bridge and be done with it.

Wouldn't that imply not posting a reply?

Now you replied again, you obviously care for this thread. In fact, I'm sure you refresh your browser just to see if there has been any new posts since your last visit. Oh, I think you could care less.

OK, I'm done now.

With my guitars, as in life, my whammy bar is for show only. Haven't had to use it for a while. So it's definitely fixed from now on for me. (The guitars, not 'me')
