    Looks like a korean/pacific rim knock-off like you see at Guitar Jones and some of the discount parts places. I had to use one once when AllParts was out of ABM. It was okay; in general I think that the finish is not as good. With these I am sure you don't get your choice of brass or aluminum.

    I've used them several times. I don't think you can beat it for the price. Like Matt said, the finish isn't great, but acceptable. The finish in the photo looks way better than the actual product. They have no sideways adjustments unlike Hipshots and ABMs, but they're much more compact.

    Cool well for 1/4 the price it looks OK did it come with screws?

    If the screws are anything like the other screws I've gotten from Grizzly I would immediately discard them and get something else!
