I'm getting my strat back together and I've been looking at these for a while. Let me know what you think of them. I may pull the trigger.
I like the name of the company
So I take it you use the wiggle stick a lot?
Nice set up, clean look. +1 EMGs... Do you have locking tuners?
I get the two mounting screw thing but what's up with the huge groove in the base plate?
always interested in that setup...thanks for posting
It's a piece of flexible sheet metal. When you rock the trem the sheet is bent. According the super Vee it's for tuning stability and better durability.
Do it you will not regret it in my opinion best tremlo on the
Exactly! I was after the sustain and let me tell u this is now the loudest guitar acousticly have ever owned it was pretty loud before this picked up a great deal of volume on the higher strings higher up the fretboard where most guitars normally die out. I literally want to buy another guitar just as an excuse to get another super v
No I do not have locking tuners yet I have some coming from stewmac I literally just bolted this on last night the guitar is also newly acquired it's a new unplayed hsh from 2006
So I have one of these super V’s on my strat? Do you think the trem bar sits very close to the strat. It’s borderline unusable for me. I am using a fender brand trem bar, could that be the issue?
That's a great question Andy I'll have to look into this I'm getting mine set up this afternoon hopefully if everything works out alright I have it close but it's just not perfect I'll let my guitar tech see what he thinks mine came with one supplied I'm going to have it floated it's floating right now I'm getting about a half step so it's close post a picture of yours if you can I want to see what you're talking about
Very cool guitar. I love that color.
Those Super V's are a very interesting trem design. How is the tuning stability?
Outstanding you need locking tuners though
I have been thinking about getting one of these for my strat.
My bridge is the 2 point (post) type, on an American deluxe.
Did everything line up for you when you installed it?
String spacing, intonation etc?
Honestly, the factory bridge works great on my guitar , but still, I'm a sucker for shiny new parts lol.
Seriously though , when the knife edges are worn thru, and it's time to replace the bridge, I'm looking for the super v.
Those things just look better and better as they refine. Mine is an older model, on my MIM strat. Amazing increase in sustain--some players buy them and block them. They also stay in tune very well.
And I have to say your photography skills are also excellent.
Should be bullet proof after the tuners.
Really diggin that color . Beautiful guitar
the primary feature of the super v is in the way the motion is supported.. by the spring steel.. there are no "pivots". thus there is no "lag" as the moment of inertia is overcome when engaging the tremolo...
by that i mean it doesn't matter what kind of pivot is used for a tremolo, when it is used the initial action has to overcome the momentary higher "friction" at the point of contact with the pivot... that is momentarily higher than the action required to continue the motion.. it's only a micro second.. but some can detect it. The super V is not so encumbered.. Kinda like turbocharger lag in a sports car...
This is one of those things that is actually measurably "better" than conventional pivot points.
Or it's a damn nice tremolo unit...
