An absolutely ingenious and musical vintage tremolo as Leo Fender had thought it

Harald769, 02.02.2016
Where is there something?
A "Made in Germany" Vintage Tremolo with the highest quality components for the same price from an original Fender American Vintage Tremolo?

With ABM. This tremolo is the absolute hammer! The best recommendation and ideal investment for life, to make a good strat even better, more perfect and musical.

The following advantages I have seen against my old Fender tremolo:

1) The 53 mm String Spacing ensures that the high and also deep E-string no longer slip over the fingerboard. This has often annoyed me at Bendings, as suddenly the high E-string slipped away and I could not play the sound at all clean. In live situations, this happened to me several times. Now this phenomenon is gone.

2) The steel tremoloblock, the steel base plate and the steel string runners provide an incredibly high sustain and an effective twangsound. Now my Strat sounds as I have always imagined the sound of a Vintagestrat. It is as if someone had removed a ceiling from my amp clear, pearly and bell-like sound, with defined basses, clear sound separation and no harsh highs. And this alone by a new tremolo, and above all, unencumbered and audible !!

3) I play the Tremolo freischwebend. Sounds better for me too. Lately, especially in high-frequency tremolo use, I have often strung strings, especially the high E string. The problem is solved by the ABM. There is no more tears here. 100% reliability especially in life situations.

4) In addition, the tremolo is almost absolutely tuneable even with intensive tremolo use.

5) With Fendertremolos the tremolo lever wobbles like a cow tail. What I have not tried everything: Feathers in the threaded shaft, Teflon tape, screwed up to the stop; The wobbling and thus the direct control of the tremolo could never be established properly. The ABM has a small maggot screw, with which one can adjust the play of the tremolo lever from loosely to properly fixed. There's no more wiggling.

6) My old tremolo had the disadvantage that the lever always hang on the cable - a high-quality monster rock cable - and stuck. And suddenly the mood was a semitone higher, and I was completely perplexed because I did not know at the first moment at a gig why my Strat could be so cruel. Now there is a lot of space, so you can plug any form of tinkle cable into the guitar.

7) And finally: the installation is for a little practiced screwdriver without problems. And the setting also works excellently. Had I already mentioned that with this tremolo of ABM the Octavreinheit can be adjusted perfectly perfectly? And that the string height is much lower adjustable, without the strings of strings?

Conclusion: In addition to my Eric Johnson Strat, the Kloppmann Real 65 PUs, my Rodenberg GAS 909, this tremolo from ABM is the very best investment for a genius and uninhibited stratageound, which gives you a guitarist A really good sound, to play even more musically.

Excellent upgrade for Stratocaster

Rodolphe P., 12.07.2016
Super product of excellent quality of manufacture.
Care must be taken to check the measures before purchase and to ensure compatibility with the instrument.
For my part he replaced the bridge on my Tex Mex of 1996.
This guitar had the particularity of having a tremolo on the US side (so vintage) but with a zinc block.
The rod and the thread of the block were completely rinsed, almost unusable.
Replacement of the whole very simple in itself, it goes back stack in place of the old one.
Where it is complicated is to find the perfect set up for its needs, the balance between the action of the springs and the tension of the strings.
After 5 or 6 attempts, I found the best compromise with 3 springs and the vibrato block very slightly floating.
Also be careful to adjust the bridges according to the radius of the key. Very important for playability.
That is, it allowed me to learn how to adjust my Strat appropriately and the ABM is superbly modular (5 springs, two blocks Steel or Brass, screws of bridges in rab ..)
The result is amazing. . The vibrato is mega soft, very closed and sensitive, my guitar is hardly disconnected, the sound takes clarity, sustain, chest, harmonics coupled to the vibrato fuse and are very stratopherian (very musical ding ..)
Upgrade to 100% recommended on any stratocaster that the lutherie deserves.
Ride on.
