    One string breaks, the others stay in tune. Now that's impressive.

    I have a PRS that stays in tune from gig to gig ( although I still need to tweak it if the temp changes. Its the best system I've used to date. And i love how the springs help add to the ease of big bends on the fingers.
    I've used Floyd Rose on Jackson USA and I much prefer PRS systems.
    But this is really impressive.
    Has anyone here tried this yet?
    No whammy bar (n)
    What are those frets? I've never seen frets like that. I always wondered about doing this, now someone has. That sure adds to the perfected intonation.
    Very cool. Good player too.

    Yup.. and they take a massive chunk of wood out of your guitar to install it, too. :eek:

    wow, I think I would only order this installed or be damn sure whomever did it for me had done a few before I gave up an axe. Pretty intence!

    True temperament frets. Pretty damn cool. I'm pretty sure if I was gigging, I would buy this axe and bridge.

    Initially, when I saw this several months ago, I was very interested in it as well - and not that my Telecaster - an '85 American Standard (see my avatar pic) - ever gives me any real problems with tuning or intonation, it's pretty rock solid - no different from that of any other very well-built electric guitar... but I thought it might be cool to look into ... but when I saw the installation vid showing just how much material they were taking away, I decided I would never be happy with having that much of my guitar body disappearing. LOL ;)

    The wood removal doesn't bother me if the bridge replaces the resonances. Which I do know is very possible. But, I wouldn't do this to my PRS or an old vintage gem as well. That guitar here though looks really cool. The frets are more interesting to me than the bridge but the bridge is definitely very cool. I like the idea that you use your pegs to adjust the tension of the bend.

    Man, what a big undertaking cutting up your body though. yikes! I can see me shaking as the bit is going into the maple, then the mahogany, then a crack! All to find you are off by a touch.

    Yes, but knowing your abilities, I'm certain you get excellent results with it in other music styles as well.

    That evertune technology gets us to a new step. A side from the autotune robot fonction Gibson introduced many years ago, there isn't much technologicly to do better with guitar making ;)
    Oh yeah I saw a midi controler pickguard.. but it's just gizmo to me ...
