This dude on Reverb. I just grabbed another one for my ESP (the first one was for that new Ibanez I just picked up).Who has them back in stock?
That's a standardish price. I got a couple for that price and some lower. You want to get them from a shop, because ordering from overseas takes forever and has additional costs.This dude on Reverb. I just grabbed another one for my ESP (the first one was for that new Ibanez I just picked up).
I don't know if ~$60 is highway robbery or not but I don't really care, my OCD loves this thing The fact that the allen key is the same size as the locking nut screws is a nice touch too.
Think of it like a fine tuner for your trem claw. I kind of forgot all about them until I saw one in a Daemoness build video recently and decided to give one a shot.
Heavy ass chunk of nicely machined metal that fixes the problems of having to adjust screws that are going directly into wood whenever you adjust claw tension. Also only adjusts at one point, so you don't have two posts with uneven lengths. Adjustment is obviously much smoother, though I'm sure if you have one for 20 years you might need to lubricate it eventually. That's about it.
Basically it replaces your 12 century outdated Claw and Tight screws design that Guitar Builders insist in using, for something that is just a simple turn of like a Truss Rod to put the Bridge levelled. No more using a screw driver and tighten or loose two screws. Its very similar to what Ibanez did on some of their trems.
I have one of those sitting on my desk. When I googled it last year I could not figure out what it was. I pulled it out of a MIM Fender Strat with a Floyd Rose.... thanks. Now I know what it actually is.They also pair well with the ESP arming adjustors. Some people use two. That's the classic heavy duty setup.
Those don't provide any functional advantage over the more basic trem stop design, but they are certainly the sure claw version of the more basic bent L version.
The arming adjustors used to be a rare item like the kahler autolatch like 8-10 years back, but ESP started doing them again and now availability is pretty good.
They're cool units for sure. A lot of guys use two, or apparently one with superglue. :lol: They actually predate the Ibanez stuff by quite a bit.I have one of those sitting on my desk.

Yeah, the softer body woods aren't as secure for stuff that mounts into the wood in that direction with shorter screws. So it's variable on a number of factors for sure.The tremsetter doesnt work 100% tho.
I had to superglue the parts because the screw would unscrew a little, and cause the zero point to shift!!!
Superglue absolutely needed for that thing.
