UV tremolo

Hi~ I am a new user of Universe in Hong Kong.
I am wondering if any of you guys have experience in setting up our beloved Universe w/ some system like Ibanez Zero Point System, which can make it in tune after using the tremolo vigorously. Also it would make it easier for tuning coz it is quite annoying for tuning also....
May anyone share their experience? Thanks so much !

Re: UV tremolo

Regular setup is definately a pain. I think what you are asking would justify trying out a Tremol-no or something of that sort. You have to have your guitar set up exactly right first though. Then install and you will have your neutral posistion set and should return to every time. Or use it to allow only diving or block it completely. The unique abilities of the trem come with a sacrifice.

Re: UV tremolo

Thanks for the replies. Sorry maybe my English sucks....
Please have a look for this youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvl0fLOzwi8
Correct me if I am wrong, I suppose ibanez Zero Point System is a similar thing.
I juz wonder if we can put similar thing into UV/ JEM.
As I am quite new to floyd rose n tuning a floyd rose (coz another guitar in my band likes to play in drop D tuning = =) seems a disaster for me.
If it works it would save me a lot.

Re: UV tremolo

I think you're looking for an Ibanez Backstop or an ESP Arming Adjuster... although the Tremol-no is what you're after for quick Drop D > Standard > Drop D tunings.
