jacksons JT580lp trem?

Is this trem "good enough" i only use the trem for dives like VH,i have it blocked for any up pull.
should i replace it with a schaller or OFR,or is it a decent trem construction wise?

There were a couple. The ones that had a "straight" back side were OK, but not great. The newer ones that had and angle to the plate by the locking screws are about TRS level.

Yeah my mates got one of those RR Jacksons and i'm not sure if it's the smae trem your talkin about but it's crap, it stays in tune for about 3 dive bombs then starts going out, even just with extream string bending it goes out. I'd get an Ibanez edge series trem as they are easily the best i've ever used.

That trem sucks. I had one on an old Jackson I used to have. It would never stay in tune.
