So I've got a concept for an improved tremolo arm for strat style trems and wonder what y'all would be willing to pay for something like that. I'll post pics once I draw them up.

My only problem with strat style (or any) tremolos is the detuning.
Which can be fixed with a lock-nut.

I really don't care as long as it looks good.
So far my favorite is the Floyd Rose style

You don't need a locknut if:

1. You use .10s or larger gauge strings
2. You tune up, stretch strings, dive bomb,tune up again, stech strings, dive bomb, and tune up again. Do this maybe three to four times until when you dive bomb it goes right back in tune. Then, whenever your out of tune just dive bomb and you should be in tune.

If you have a lock nut, keep it unlocked while you do the process above and when you are in tune lock it up.

Tremelos seem distracting to me.

I'm thinking kinda like a Bigsby style trem arm for a Strat trem.

One of the Reasons I really like Charvels is cause theyre basically Strats with Whammy bridges. So yeah I would say standard Strat Bridges are decent but not awesome. Bigsby would be cool on a Strat too.
