fixed bridge locking nut rg
I thought I mentioned that but I guess, I didn't. Yes, It should have a more advanced bridge that allows fine tuning if necessary. It should look something like the edge, but permanantly mounted in a fixed bridge position. I said it before, but I belive Kahler had a system like this, a fine tuning bridge that looked like a trem but did not act like a trem. And yes, I have thought of just blocking the trem, but that is a pain, and if I'm not mistaken, the HUGE amount of wood carved out for the edge system adversly affects tone and sustain. This would solve that. And locking tuners don't solve the string retainer width problem in a conventional nut. Again, they have to be filed, and please don't tell me their aren't numerous players slapping 52-56 gauge E strings on their guitars and tuning down to B, A or C. *I tried that once and I cracked the nut at the low E end. *So, there may be some solutions like buying a 421 and putting a 420 neck on it, filing the nut, or blocking the trem, but I don't feel like all that modifying is necessary if it came from the factory that way.
