The "Revoulutionary" new ibanez trem revealed- and it isn't coming
A while back Steve Vai had been dropping hints about a revolutionary ibanez tremolo design. Then there was nothing else ever said about it. It seemed like Steve had spilled te beans early and that it would take years for it to come.
Well, it is not coming, at least from ibanez or any manufacturers. I'll tell you what it was-
It was a tremolo that required no tools to maintain. You wouldn't need any Allen keys, screwdrivers, anything. It would be completley able to be done by hand.
The reason it never came- no company was interested in making it.
At Vai Academy Steve talked about copyrighting stuff, and his ideas, patents etc. he then explained about the trem- presumably the one he said he was working on that would be revolutionary- and said no company would make or design it. He said to feel free to try in our own lol.
It was a mystery for so long and now we know what it finally was. Unfortunately it's not going to happen any time soon. Hopefully he hasn't given up though. Maybe someone will design one
