At the moment only 25% say yes.FOr me, vibrato is about 20% of the use of a Strat. Non-experinced players probably can't make heads or tails of its use and decide NOT is better than USE.

Missing one option: Yes but it's flat against the body

Seems best of both worlds. You can tune to Drop-D, no issues with double stop bends. But if you need to do a little dive it's still there for you.

Also... I'll be the one pretending that it does make a difference in tone and a floating trem makes a Strat sound more like a Strat. But that's me. Flat against the body is still a cool tone though.

The 2-point Fulcrum Vibratos are so easy to manipulate on my Strat Pro and Strat Ultra that
for light use, I don't even put the bar on to make effects. If I was gigging, yeah the bar is on.

They are almost decked as I like to palm mute. I usually keep it off my FCS Strat.
