    I just got an MIJ RG470 with a Lo-TRS tremolo, but with no bar. After some research, it looks as though the replacement bar is the threaded kind. I actually really dislike threaded bars, so my question is, can I replace the trem arm assembly on the Lo-TRS with a Schaller trem arm assembly? I...

    Hello, I have a Lo-TRS trem. I am using 09-42 and guitar has 2 springs on it angled in this way / \. It is better to use this config or the standard | | ? I really like how loose is the use of the bar but the disadvantage is that the trem goes dows so easily during palm muting. If a use 2...

    I recently picked up a used '99 JS100 that I've been gradually replacing all the chrome hardware with black. The '98 JS100 came with the Lo-TRS II trem and, after a LOT of research on this forum, it seemed to be universally reviled, with many people opting to replace it with a Gotoh 1996T Floyd...
