    Hi there!

    Quick question from a friend of mine, who plays electric guitar : Are there also Hipshot Detuners availabe for the electric guitar? He plays some riffs with the Low B string, tuned down to an A some now and then, but he we like to have a Detuner (if it exists), so he can down tune faster and back to standard again.

    Thanks

    Banjo players have their Keith-Scruggs tuners, and some guitar players have adapted them to guitar.

    Then there is the Trilogy bridge, if he wants to push things further.

    It's made by Hipshot too.
    3 different tunings for each string.

    Check out this application of exactly that idea:



    Warning: Watch out for BIG peaks in the recording, including right at the beginning of the tune!
    The audio signal apparently has no compression on it at all, and Jon has a very *ahem* dynamic style

    Pretty impressive stuff, though :bassist:

    And if he's got a Floyd Rose trem, there is the EVH Detuna.
