    I just came across this YouTube vid the other day. I have not found a better setup system. My trem. was fairly OK prior to trying this. Now it stays in tune perfectly. There appears to be a lot of nay-sayers in the comment section, but I'm here to tell you it has been the perfect solution for keeping a floating Wilky-style trem in tune. Make sure you get the intervals correct per string and it should be perfect for you.

    I set up my Strat like this and it would not go out of tune no matter how Beck I got

    Can one do compound “double stop” bends with it?

    One can, but it's going to go out of tune like every other floating Strat. It's a good setup, but it's not magic.
