|frank #2||wilkinson vsv tremelo!|
I heard a lot about wilkinsons vsv tremelo,
is this indeed a major update and a good replacement
tremelo on a strat style guitar?
Does wilkinson have a web-site?
Where can i view pictures of this tremelo?
Thanks a lot,

First of all, yes, it is very good IF you want the jangly bright brash tone of this metal trem.
It is $$$$. $165 list. Even at a discount, you can imagine it's still up there.
I haven't found a website - if I ever get my digital camera working I will post a picture.
It really changes the tone of the guitar. In my Pacifica's case, much more brighter, louder, raw.
I love it.

Thanks for your reply!
Is the wilkinson vsv more sustainfull than an-
original vintage-style strat tremelo?
In what way does it sound differend than a vintage trem?
Thanks a lot!

I don't know if it's more sustainful at all. It makes your guitar louder - a lot louder and brighter.
Without having tried a vintage trem on my guitar, I can't really say how much of an improvement it is - but I tell you, the action of the trem is fantastic. The arm and pivot is great.

if you like the tone of a vintage trem, you'll probably hate the wilk. you'll lose fullness and gain harshness. i put one on and did a few gigs with it. then i returned to the vintage and it was like going from a cheesy plywood junk heap to a great guitar. i can't guarantee youll hear the same thing, but it was nite and day to me. horrible trem imo.
