    I've remembered a great source of wang inspiration: the sadly recently deceased Michael Caswell. Check out the material he did for Lick Library for great bar control.
    Correction then, as the original is quite dull compared to the live version. Hes definitrly doing some fluttering but it all serves the song.

    New Strats come with a spring that goes in under the bar to help keep it snug; used Strats are almost always missing this IME.

    Also, you can wrap teflon plumber's tape or plastic bag material around the bushings of the bar in order to make it fit more snugly.

    I've also swapped the Ibanez Edge trem bar and insert for Schaller Floyd Rose bar and you can tighten it up this way, but it's not a perfect fit as the Edge/Lo Pro Edge have an angled baseplate whereas the FR baseplate is flat. But it does work.

    Sure. I'm pretty sure Lee originally posted about it on MG, but I typed it up elsewhere:

    Ibanez. Prestige v Premium? - Guitar Discussions on theFretBoard

    and Lee popped up himself later in the same thread with his latest method:
    Ibanez. Prestige v Premium? - Guitar Discussions on theFretBoard

    There's a few other tales of things one can do with one's boingy bar in that thread, too. (And it was where I got the tip-off that led to my getting my blue RG.)

    There's a stickied how-to on here for that!
