    Looks interesting, I like the sound of my E/A alum barrel saddle.

    The language and tone of that auction text is a huge turn-off.

    Agreed for the most part, but no. 7000 (Aircraft) Aluminium does rings like a bell. In fact, Nik Huber Guitars uses a custom made Aluminium sustain block under his Huber designed tremolo! And I do believe TOM bridges are also made from Aluminium. I have doubts about the baseplate, IF its also made from Aluminium...

    Secret? If they don't mention a patent (or patent pending status), then sorry...it ain't "secret." Maybe they mean trade secret...are there any revolutionary new aluminum alloys? I don't know...

    Like Eagle said, Dimarzio did this ages ago.

    The lack of correct references for unit-measurements when quoting numeric data also throws up red flags.

    Hey, maybe it's the greatest thing since sliced bread, but perhaps they ought to think about getting a better copy writer if they intend to sell this on it's technical merits.

    >>titanium is as strong as some steels, but 45% lighter<< per Wiki FWIW
    So, like a lot of things I don't understand the first comparison.
    They do say 'awsome' however and clearly mean awesome.
    They also say 'unbelievable' and I am inclined to agree, although, I like the solid block idea in principle, I would have only a vague idea how it sounds based on the blurb.
    They also market 'ALL ALUMINUM' vintage amps, I see. Another breakthrough?
