Mixed reviews on this one, but 175 USD used and gonna use it for alternate tunings, instead of having to re-tune my Ibanez guitars with Floyd Rose, so for the price it's probably not too bad smile.gif

So far I like it, but I haven't played it more than 10 minutes.

Actually quite surprised how well this plays (for the price)! I won't be using it for solos, I think, mostly for a rythm guitar in drop C.

It needs to be intonated I have noticed, as it's actually quite bad at some parts. I just don't know how, as the system is quite different from normal bridges. I'll have to figure it out when I buy new strings.

There should be those tiny allen key holes and risers on the bridge just like on a strat bridge or hipshot bridge. A tiny allen wrench raise then up and you may be able to move the saddle forward and back for each string. If not, it's going to be more of a compromise on intonation.

Let us know how it goes! I'm sure everyone is curious about what it's like to own and maintain one of these. I'm sure everyone here has considered buying one. I sure have smile.gif Seems really hard to beat for the price.

Yes, I noticed those, but couldn't seem to make much of it work while the guitar had strings on it. Will have to look into it without the strings first to learn the mechanism smile.gif

Thanks, SJ! I figured it out myself, sort of, while watching the videos for background noise. It's still not exactly perfect intonation-wise, but I think it's better. Then again, it's a cheap guitar, especially compared to my 10x as expensive Ibanez smile.gif
