    I hope this is the right area to post this...

    I have a trem here that I've never seen before. It's very heavy, looks like solid steel. Stud spacing is the same as an OFR. Has a bar for the springs to attach to. It's single locking, has radiused saddles. Kinda interesting, and I bet it would sustain like mad.

    Any ideas? Oh, there are no identifying markings anywhere. Thanks!!!

    that reminds me of some '80s yamaha locking trems i've seen.

    back then, everybody and their brother was trying to make a floyd where you didn't have to cut the ball ends off the strings, and none of them were ever any good.

    an interesting piece of history, but i wouldn't want it on one of my guitars.
