Posted: Sun Apr 12, pm. The American Standard is offered with the two post style "new" tremolo". What are the pros and cons of this new style tremolo? My first throught is that there is less beef connecting the strings to the body and therefore less tone and less sustain.
Hi Parker. I'd recommending adjusting each one so that it just touches the top of the tremolo unit, without forcing the back of the unit to start rising off the top of the guitar. Certainly don't tighten each one down all the way. Ordinarily I'd say to lower the pivot screws and slacken the springs a bit so that you have the setup like in this blog post.
