This is good to know @Freddy G , thanks for the post.
Can I see a pic of the guitar?
this is the guitar:
What's your take on fine tuners vs no fine tuners?
without a doubt, the non fine tuner bridge sounds awesome....way better than the fine tuner counterpart
Hard to tell from the pic. Is that a standard bone nut? Obviously a locking nut would be a giant PITA without fine tuners...
Really interesting discussion...
Cards on table, I prefer the brass block for the same reason as FreddyG, although I use the standard fat brass, not the L-block. But the quirky bit is that the roughly equivalent mass of the tungsten and brass L blocks apparently produces different tone, which is unexpected. Given the difference in shape (volume) and density between the two, this suggests that mass distribution might be playing a larger role than simply mass alone. A dense but relatively small tungsten block affects the vibrational properties of the tremolo unit as a whole differently to a less dense, larger brass block. This is, I freely admit, speculative, but something's going on. We cannot all be kidding ourselves in the same way
It's a tusq XL nut. The tuning stability is superb.
