Re: Guitar in the future.

The kicker will be when someone does something awesome on this thing, which someone definitely will do. Then EVERYONE will just HAVE to have one to get "that sound". Didn't I read that Steve was experimenting with a few totally new types of trems, maybe for the 20th Anni?

Re: Guitar in the future.

I think its a cool idea. Of course it's going to be different, because there's always going to be some kind of give and take. Having the metal tails flipped the other way would probably make it easier to to trem drops as you said. I'm all for seeing this thing in action (vids!). For all the naysayers, at least they're trying something new. If everyone worked on the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" idea, we wouldn't even have the OFR.

I think that would be a perfect addition to a sustainer guitar. Picking wouldn't be such a huge deal because hammer ons could do more with driven strings, and then it could be used for cool string pitch slides I'm thinking Ibanez RG model with a sustainiac or fernandes, plus one of those bridges

Re: Guitar in the future.

Nice tone, and those are some amazing pictures. Of all 'butcherings' of a guitar that looks done the neatest. The curvature of the arch top on the guitar really comes through in the photos.

One thing that does concern me though is the height of those arms. Might be an issue when in storage...

Will be a problem though if you do dive bombs and pick at the same time regularly...as per Vai, Satriani etc etc.


I still am not convinced anyone could make use of this as it is......i 'would' be slightly more convinced if it were to somehow have a removable link bar behind the individual string trems that was attached to a wammy bar so you could actually dive and it would dive ALL the strings at once....but then be able to remove the bar if you didnt need it....a little bit like what ibanez have on one of their new guitars...its a U shaped metal thing that slots into either side of the trem so you use it without a bar...you just pull on the U shaped metal thing either up or down.

Re: Guitar in the future.

Theres compromises only if you think of it as a "trem equiped guitar" (like people thinking of it as a floyd replacement)...

I see it like quite a big change to the instrument itself... taking it to a whole different direction in terms of playing (and listening!)...

Iím waiting for an answer from the maker for if it is okay to show the inside, I donít really know if that is okay now. Patent and stuff like that.
And I donít have a tremolo that is not installed in a guitar at this time.

Thanx for sharing Mag
Yes, I think you are right. My imagination just runs bananas when I think of all the new and cool sounds it can make. There will be compromises involved, like not having a traditional arm, but I donít see it as a problem. There are compromises with everything, with a Floyd do I lose the benefits of a fixed bridge, with humbuckers do I lose the benefits of a singlecoil, with distortion do I lose the benefits of a clean tone and so on, everything is a compromise.
But looking at what you gain instead makes life easier :-)

It was cool to see that it was in a RGA sins I have several RGAís here to compare the tone with, and there are no difference between the original bridge and this one.

I will have Ibanez send me an RG body thatís has no carving for a bridge at all when I will install one of these in my guitars. I will also install a Sustainer driver in that guitar (because that would give even more cool ways to use this).

The company is called Sonoinvent, by the way.

And the tremolo is called TremoLogic.

Re: Guitar in the future.

thank you for sharing with us,
IMHO, the new trem design looks ugly.

For me, I'll stay with old trusty Floyd rose system, ( LO pro/ edge for ibanez).
The Floyd is almost 20 years now? and still being used until today. If stratocaster can last that long, I hope floyd will too.

Re: Guitar in the future.

Good point there, you're right about being unable to behind the nut bends being up only. I forgot about that.

The thing that makes it a bit different is that you can bend both up and down, you can't do that with behind the nut things.
And very easily affect as many strings as you like.
