This is my second tremolo guitar. It has a Walnut body, Maple neck, Bois de Rose fingerboard, 25" scale, locking tuners and DiMarzio Super Distortion and Fred humbuckers.
The interesting thing about it is that the tremolo floats and goes down and up considerably more than normal. I modified the trem block and the trem cavity, all to increase the amount of travel of the whammy bar.
I find it hard to play tunes on this guitar because I tend to go nuts on the whammy all the time. You can get some unbelievable sound effect when the guitar is plugged into a high gain amp. Its so much fun that you forget about actually playing tunes on the guitar.
Does it stay in tune ? Its quite amazing. I don't personally believe it, but you can go nuts on the bar and you will be perfectly in tune.
I am certain that this guitar would be the best guitar you have ever played, unless you already own some other Zachary guitars.
What a cool guitar. Why anyone would want to go into a music store and buy one of those mass-produced jobs, is beyond me.
