...has anyone tried this?
Thought I knew it all - didn't know THAT!!!
Trying to remember all that gives me a headache .
Glad I play a Tele!
So was it just the loosening of the claw screws that helps it return to tune or what?!
Maybe I missed something.
That is very cool!
No, it's just so he can set up the tremelo so it can whammy "up" instead of just "down", with the bridge plate not flush onto the body.
...i've been experimenting with this method on all my guitars that have a floating trem bridge. incidentally, none have a vintage six-screw bridge.
i must confess that i have no grasp whatsoever of the art or science involved.
but, the crazy thing is, it works, exactly as demonstrated.
This is easily the coolest guitar-related thing I've learned in years. Thanks for posting it.
Cool. You found it too!
I did a search on keeping a strat in tune a couple of weeks ago and found the same video. All of the others were useless except that one.
It isn't perfect every time, but it does work surprisingly well.
I had always kept strat bridges flat to the body to make the tuning idiot proof.
But the vibrato flutter is so much sweeter when the bridge is floating.
