What type of guitar bridge should I choose?
My old Ibanez fell victim to the May 22nd Tornado in Joplin, Mo. I recovered her, but her body really isn’t up restringing, so she’ll be sitting pretty on my wall.
Should I go with another floating Tremolo, or go with a more traditional bridge? I loved the ibanez (not a true floyd rose I know) bridge, but I don’t always play strictly in 1 tuning. While I got better at changing in less time, it was still a hassle.
To add another caveat into the picture, I really can’t stand playing on Tone pro’s and similar. The action (at least on my picking hand) seems unbearably far from the body. I know that they are a great system, and many amazing players do great, but I don’t want to try and conform to a different hand position after playing for as long as I have.
So….. what are my fellow guitar player’s thoughts?
