IMHO they are in several ways better than an "old crappy Fender bridge". Mine ('97 CE22) is by far the best trem I've played period. It stays in tune no matter how much you abuse it, it has a wonderful feel to it, the arm attachment is the simplest and most effective I've seen (why oh why don't the other manufacturers do it the same way), it came perfectly set up from the factory (so was the nut), has never required any readjustment in 8 years and the tone and sustain is unbelievable for a trem, due I guess to all those 6 pivots making contact between the tremolo and the body. Nothing wrong with that as long as it's manufactured to tight tolerances and set up carefully, which I guess PRS trems are and that's why they work so well.Originally posted by 908SSP
PRS bridges are a joke. They look pretty but are in no way better then an old crappy fender bridge. I have to laugh at PRS web site with their slogan about not being tied to the past for traditions sake. how do explain that throw back trem. Any trem with more then two pivots is a farce.
