Is there a Squier version?
Would it come in different colours?
Would it be just as useful?
Probably.

I demanded it, and Fender heard me?? You mean they decided to offer the Tele Ultra Luxe without a *******ed rib cut? :p

Hey, this thing actually works.

As someone pointed out earlier a similar effect happens when changing from Klusons to Grovers. The added weight does indeed increase volume and sustain. It just does.

To what degree does it work, will vary from guitar to guitar.

In my experience with this, I have in the past removed locking tuners, or Grovers in favor of Klusons to get a different sound. I'm from the "Sustain is highly over-rated camp" and find that the inherent increase in brightness from these sustain devices or heavy tuners, just doesn't suit my taste. But it does work.

I love the idea someone had about putting a tuner on it! (if I were to use a sustain block)

I remember the original.
A friend and band mate at that time worked at our local guitar shoppe.
One afternoon he tried hard to get me to buy one.
I know I never saw one on any of his guitars.
I’ll be honest, I mentally backed away from our friendship a little bit because of that.

Be careful with using it on a Gibson. It may leave marks in a nitro finish like their stands so wrap the contact points with cotton cut out of old socks or underwear.
Good call… but given current ‘relicing’ trends this might be desirable
