My next build is going to be a carved top LPS. What sort of tremolo (non locking type) would you put on it? I like the 6 hole vintage trem from W but they don't work with carved tops. How about a Wilkinson?............any thoughts? :icon_scratch:

it's gonna be a righty this time BTW :icon_thumright:

You may have to go with a recessed Floyd, that's about the only trems I've seen on a LP.. :dontknow:

Are you sure that 6-hole trems won't work with carved tops? I had a VW carved top a few years ago with a 6-hole, worked fine.

Re: Those guitar designer thingies...

Warmoth ought to have on of those with its most common options available for customers to play with - it might make the end result easier to envisage.

I say: HIPSHOT TREMOLO!! better than wilkies. (no knifes to go dull, more sturdy, nicer way to put the tremarm in the block, tremarm goes through the baseplate into the block) and the cool thing is: the hipshot fits on warmoth's Wilkinson-rout!
