The “Advanced String Guide” with its hollow in conjunction with the newly developed saddles holds the tremolo in tune perfectly. The base plate and mounting screws have the same hardness, so that material wear for continuous operation could be extremely minimized.
The tremolo arm is adjustable and the comfortable torpedo knob feels perfect. Likewise tremolo springs have been developed that allow smoothest and soundless “tremolo-action”. In conjunction with a good bone saddle and locking tuning machines it operates almost in tune. The appearance fits. Vintage correct execution with chromed base plate in “mirror-gloss quality” and nickel plated saddles! On request, in “mint condition” aged.
