    I just went to hip shot, and found they now produce a bass tremelo for $150-$170 and they claim it to stay in tune. I am very much thinking about it. I have some hipshot products, and I am quite pleased with the quality.

    My big question is, how do you install a tremelo? Do you have to cut out some wood? can someone please explain:D

  2. i saw it, and it does require a bit of routing.
  3. As with any tremelo it will require quite a bit of routing

    PS: Those tremolo springs look like guitar tremolo springs, I wonder if they really are, in that case of course the routing will be smaller than that required by many other bass tremolos with longer springs
