    I just got a Ibanez RG350MDX and was thinking I might want to get a Tremol-no for it sometime down the road. I noticed there are 3 different models (Large clamp, Small clamp, and the Pin type), which one would I need?

    In the FAQs it says that you can install it even if you have 5 springs in the back of the guitar. Anyone know have it would fit in then?

    You should be good with the pin type

    IIRC, the clamp types are for older, more vintage trems that don't have holes for the pin.

    Unless KEvan has changed the design, you can install it with a maximum of 4 springs. However, I was able to install a T-no in my UV strung up 11-68 in standard with only four springs, so with a bit of adjustment you should be able to handle almost anything sane with it.

    I love the things - less for the ability to lock the trem while playing (which is pretty cool, admittedly, but I don't do often) than for the fact that it makes string changes an absolute breeze.

    If they're such a breeze, why do you bitch so much when you do mine?

    They're a breeze once they're installed and set up properly. Getting the alignment just right can be a little tricky, though. It's not rocket surgery, but it does take some patience.

    Alignment can be a real pain. Although, part of the problem I ran into with the guitar that I tried to put it in was that one of the trem claw screws was slightly bent, which threw everything off every time I turned it.

    Great unit though once it's set up right.
