Aye tail piece position is balls, but I think the trem looks good. That's the Mk 1 which looks better than the ii

I've just been looking at these too. The Dusenberg II looks like mid-century toilet hardware but it's so much cheaper I'll likely check one out at some point.

Hmm, I do think I prefer the Mk. 1.
The page at Thomann led me to look at roller bridges... >>This<< looks like quite a sneaky way to allow for issues with the position of your TOM bridge posts and string spacing.

lee is a beast! some of my fav SY songs are lee songs.
as for the trem bit. years ago there was someone in town that had something that looked similar, i don't remember if it was branded or not, but it was on an epi sg. it worked against the string tension and just a flimsy piece of metal, no spring. it didn't hold tune worth a crap.

Aye I've seen those terms utter garbage, this is proper German engineering... Vorsprung Durch Technik as they said in adverts in the 80s.

Wot, the Gibson Maestro vibrola as used by Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash and others?

You just have to set it up right....

Well after the wait it doesn't fit my SG according to deusenberg one of the post ferrules on my guitar must be in squint, I'd have to force it and risk stripping the threads... looked cool as fuck too.

^ I like it. That thing has the "cool-as-fook steampunk" aesthetic of a Bigsby going on, without the "boat anchor that weighs more than the guitar" aspect.
