Questions and Pole

What is the best whammy song vai does? In my opinion it is Attitude song or the live Shyboy. What about yours?

Also, is the TRS and the OFR completely switchable with NO modifications?

I'd have to say the best whammy song Vai does it FTLOG. I say that because whammy bars are used a lot for wild and crazy sounds, yet in this song, it's used to make the guitar guitar cry and wail, and Vai pulls it off like no other with command.

As for the Floyd/TRS switch, you can switch the bridges (smart move might I say) w/ no mods, but you might have to leave the trem cavity cover off, since the OFR (Original Floyd Rose) block is a slightly longer than the TRS, and wouldn't fit into the cavity w/ the cover on. I'm not sure if the blocks are interchangeable though.

Any answers on this Glen, Rich?
