Go to stew mac. They bring your trem back to "zero" & also stop strings from sounding flat with double stop bends. And resting palm on the bridge doesn't cause strings to go sharp.

I had a Jackson with one installed, and found that they also improve the clarity and strength of the guitars tone. I didn't realize how much of a difference it made until I was changing strings one day. While the string tension was loose, and therefore the tremsetter was not engaged, the tone sounded normal. Then while tightening one of the strings, I suddenly heard the guitars tone get quite noticeably stronger and clearer. Curious, I detuned the string and heard the tone go back to normal. After a bit of experimentation, I noticed that the tone got better right at the instant that the string tension became strong enough to set the tremsetter in it's engaged position.

The big negative to the tremsetter is that it does make the trem a tiny bit stiffer, and pretty much eliminates flutter. Since I don't use trem flutters in my playing, and like the greater degree of control that the stiffness provides, I think that they are a good mod.

Is this the trem setter yall are refering to?

Or are yall talking about the one from Ibanez? The one that bolts to the cavity and has 2 sprint loaded stops that goes against the spring block?

That's what I assumed he was talking about, yes.
I've never had 4 springs in a trem but it feels really stiff to me. The hole is drilled in back, in between the 2 trem claw screws. You need a really long bit to get somewhat of a straight angle.

How do you guys feel about the Trme Setter that was included in some of the Ibanez models?

I have never tried one, just seen a few on the older JEM's and S series.
