U-bar question...

I know everyone is prolly gunna hate me for bringing up the subject of the U-bar.. But my guitar is constantly out of tune because I lay my hand across the tuner when im doin stuff.. Did they ever make a U-bar for anything other than the K-7? I hate constantly tuning and thats the best way that I can see to solve it.. They should make a bridge that has a peice of metal over the top of the tuners so that the tuners hang out from the sides so you can tune but you arent gunn rub them out of tune.

Re: U-bar question...

I've seen people just take a piece of duct tape and cover the tuners. Looks ugly and is not ideal but it works for gigs.

Ibanez made such an item for some of the early Jem's.

Re: U-bar question...

There's one of those for sale in the classifieds, but it might not do what you want. You're actually rotating the fine tuners, right? This thing covers the bridge, and allows you to rest your hand on it without pulling the trem sharp. but the tuners are still just as exposed. But perhaps if you could rest your hand like that on the bridge, your technique would change so you weren't hitting the fine tuners. I can't figure out how you're rubbing the fine tuners all the way back there. It's pretty far back, so you'd have to be picking really close to the bridge, or you have gorilla hands. Have you tried a Lo Pro Edge, or the EP's? Those tuners are very far out of the way.
