    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.

    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?

    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

    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?

    Very cool guitar. I love that color.

    Those Super V's are a very interesting trem design. How is the tuning stability?

    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.

    Congrats!

    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...
