Product Description

Its been sometime coming but now we have a solution for those who want to replace the fulcrum trem in a Stratocaster or Stratocaster style guitar: its an Stetsbar Strat-Style Professional Tremolo System. Remove the existing trem, springs and claw and the Stetsbar unit clamps into the trem cavity. Add the supplied shim to the neck pocket (if needed) and you are ready to go. This is one trem you will not want to block!

Stetsbar is the modern, professional, linear tremolo system that retro fits to stop tail, hard tail, Tele and Strat style guitars without any modification - no holes, no routing! Hi-tech micro roller bearings combine with a bridge that moves with the trem to give the Stetsbar unrivalled pitch range and stability for its class coupled with a extremely smooth up and down action.

With a straight forward, rapid fit to guitars like the Gibson Les Paul, SG, ES335, Flying V, Fender Telecaster, Stratocaster and many more, Stetsbar is the trem of choice for professional and amateur guitarists worldwide and - with the OEM version - for guitar builders who need the best.

Available in multiple finishes, now is the time to experience the difference that Stetsbar will bring to your guitar!

Professional-Level Performance Without Compromising Your Guitar Tuning and intonation stay correct - even after dive-bombing. The friction-free action gives you the sensitivity for delicate and accurate control of the trem's effects. Its smoothness comes from the trem and bridge gliding horizontally back and forth on rollers, giving you shimmering vibrato with the lightest of touches. The bend range is big: up to one octave down and a third up. The cost of installation is either zero or minimal. It's so straightforward to fit that you can do it yourself in about 40 to 50 minutes. Around 70% of Stetsbar owners fit their own. If you prefer to have a Guitar Tech do it, the cost is small because it's so quick to fit. $50 for 20 to 30 minutes of their time is all it can take. There are no complicated mechanisms with lots that can go wrong and requiring lots of maintenance. The uncomplicated Stetsbar is deliberately designed with few moving parts, all precision-made. The result is a very simple mechanism giving years of reliable, maintenance-free performance. There is no friction to break your strings, wear out the bridge or require you to use roller saddles that dull the tone. By the trem and bridge gliding back and forth together friction and string fatigue are eliminated, avoiding any need for roller saddles. Your strings last as long as normal and your tone stays bright. Your guitar's sustain and clarity of tone won't be reduced due to any lessening of the strings' break-angle from the top of the saddles. With Stetsbar, the break-angles remain exactly the same as those of the top guitar brands. If anything, your sustain will increase due to the extra mass of the Stetsbar on your guitar. A Stetsbar can be so easy to install and remove that putting a tremolo system on your guitar is no longer a major, irrevocable, one-off decision. You gain the freedom to use a tremolo as the mood takes you or as your musical needs require. You can switch the Stetsbar easily between different guitars you own.

How Does It Feel? Use all your normal playing techniques of damping, vamping, choking, semi-harmonics, etc. Rest the palm of your hand on the bridge area as normal without fear of activating the trem by accident. It's like taking two guitars to the gig: a hard-tail and a tremolo guitar. One doesn't interfere with the other. When you want tremolo, you get it. When you don't, you won't. This is all because the Stetsbar moves horizontally to produce tremolo rather than rocking on a vertical fulcrum. Activating the tremolo accidentally is impossible until you decide you want it. Play double-stop string bends without putting your guitar out of tune. With Stetsbar's unique "floating lock" use dropped D and other drop tunings on the fly, and when a stringbreaks the other strings stay in tune. With no locking-nut needed or complicated bridge mechanism, re-stringing is as quick and easy as ever.
