Re: i hope this guy gets floating trems going soon.

I have checked them out a few times. I would love to get my hands on one. They seem kind of like those Zacharys, only they look cool and he isn't a douche (J/K guys, c'mon)

Re: i hope this guy gets floating trems going soon.

they're awesome guitars. I had a go when I was at the London Guitar Show a couple of years back. I think he is looking at putting locking trems on at some point, pretty sure it says so on the website actually...though I may have it the wrong way round and he isn't He's a very helpful guy, just drop him an email.

Re: i hope this guy gets floating trems going soon.

if you click the 884 or whatever itīs called, the fanned fret one, you can read about why the floyd guitar is so delayed, it was because he was working pretty hard on that guitar... so yeah, itīs coming...

Re: i hope this guy gets floating trems going soon.

I had a go on Clive's Black Machine a few years back and it was a very cool solid guitar.
Felt a bit like an S as it's unnaturally thin but it was very light.

I felt it was a bit too dear for what it was though.

Re: i hope this guy gets floating trems going soon.

I really like their shape. I'm 100% sure if I like or hate the headstock.
I would love to have the 7 or the 8-string (in this case I think I wouldn't even notice the headstock).

I must say that I'm looking for a non-tremolo 7-string, so it doesn't bother me if he doesn't get floating trems anytime soon!
