    His piccolo bass with the tremolo is sweet

    This Sei singlecut Flamboyant belongs to a fellow British Talkbasser, xo-bionic.

    wow...

    And that's coming from someone who doesn't like singlecuts!
     
  9. that is pretty sexy. unfortunately im guessing it has a floyd rose style trem or something floating. ewwwwwwwwwwww............

    i love that fretboard, is that bloodwood or what?
     
  10. its a kahler bass trem ill get a pic of mine up soon. its floating but it stays in tune really well. i liek it cause u dont need to remove as much wood.
     
  11. Im a big fan of bigsbys.....unfortunately they dont make them for bass

    I know Stanley Clarke had a Bigsby-style trem on one of his basses... was probably a custom job though.

  15. It would be sweet to put a tremolo on the Jazz bass I'm saving up for over the summer...

    Too much!

    :help:

    This is mine. Not so sexy, but functionally awsome. This trem will do deep dives and the usual tremelo fare, plus TRANSPOSE down to B or up to C and never go out of tune. I can also go to the gig on my motorcycle. Come to think of it, that is sexy.

  18. Do you have to cut a beastly hole in the back for all the tensioning springs and stuff or is it a direct bolt-on?
