Re: Göldo BackBox
I have used all of the " stabilizers" ,....Trem-Setter, WD, Mag-Lock, Goeldo, Rockinger, ESP, Ibanez, and the best I've found is the Kahler version. They are maybe $20.00 from Wammiworld. Same principle as All the others, basically half of an Ibanez Trem-Stop. Why I don't use the others,...? With the Trem-setter you have to route a little and set up sux. Mag-lock will work for some peeps, but the detent drove me bonkers. ESP/Goeldo/Rockinger Back Box/Trem Setter/ Kahler are very similar just different places for mounting screws. They all were pretty much forced to halt sales back in the day by the holder of the patent, and I guess as long as they aren't marketing them they are not bothering them. Same Patent that forced Ibanez to stop selling the ZPS in US last year, although that's more complicated, (they actually had a licensing agreement paying patent holder $ on each unit but we're selling more units than they were paying for).
New company now selling similar unit,. Codella Guitars just began marketing their take on the Balanced Spring Tension Stabilizer.
