saw them across at the projectguitar forum a while back. They look like a great idea. I would be a bit weary about buying one though, because if I was to block my trem I could do it for free (virtually) with a bit of wood, and that bit of wood may also improve my tone... and I doubt these would

it is a great little thing which I find really useful

I am still trying mine out but it really solves the problem of changing between drop D and standard tuning with the same guitar. Which I was doing in seconds between songs during band rehearsals.

It of course adds stability to standard tuning for greater riff-tastic-ness

Glen-Difficult to tell. There might be some less flutter and a different feel to the trem but it is slight.

I think I would have to take it off again and re-check the trem feel without it. I think I have got used to it being on now!

For my style of playing and whammy bar use it has made no difference.

I think it's a great idea for those who want the flexibility to go from full-floating trem to experimenting with alternate tunings (or even stabilizing the bridge after a broken string) on the fly. Combine it with a D-Tuna on a full-floating trem guitar and you've got a lot of options.

I can easily see companies like Fender (who now owns the Floyd Rose patents), Ibanez, Schaller or Gotoh potentially licensing this thing.

Can't stand the name, though. "Tremo-no" would have rolled off the tongue better than "Tremol-no".

gotcha. you have this on the BMC? might not notice the diference... sort of what some trem-stabilizer users say, depending on usage but w/o screwing into the body (also w/o the double stop broken string issue fix).

has potential, as stated above it's too early to call, especially w/o pricing & availability... glen

it is a good idea (and potentially very useful for some) and a lot of people will be interested in trying one out

Kev just told me he did redesign the claw to prevent spring walking. I'll be picking mine up out in LA and give it a good test. Promising idea for those that could use it but as Kev knows I spent the last 8 years on my Les Paul wanting nothing more than a floater, hardtails I have no use for [or alternate tunings]. The idea that you could use this to lock the bridge after breaking a string during a performance is weak, you'd be locking it out of tune, better just to stop and grab the backup of course

Yeah well erm uh... drama aside:

I've been talking to Kev about this since the beginning, but have yet to see anything beyond what's on the official website. In theory it is a very neat idea and something I'd *probably* use. However, without someone like me being able to pick one up in any way/shape/form, it means nothing. I could easily forsee an upstart company picking the idea up and marketing it along with a small number of other products. As logical as it may be, I don't really see it having an Ibanez patent. It just seems they are hesitant to take too many risks on additional options to guitars.

I guess I'm with Glen, nice idea, but talk to me when I can buy one.

I would say I was more than that.

I am giving it a proper run through over a number of months before I give a full report back to Kevan. I can also post here if you like

There are many more people who have one who are far more qualified (and talented) than me to judge its merits.
