Re: New Tremolo for 2008 prestiges?
CG, if you were talking to me, that's not the lock nut I was referring to. I was talking about the one that Ibanez is actually using.
The font angle has been increased on the base, so the strings now bend over that edge. The redesign was done to remove the need for a string retainer bar behind the nut.
If the new lock nut turns out to be a string breaker, I'll be interested in knowing if the old design can be retro-fitted and then possibly re-drilling for the retainer bar also. Time will tell. Richs' site is under maintenance at the moment.
