Staytrem vs Mastery

Now that there's been enough time for the Staytrem to catch on, how is it holding up against the Mastery? What is your experience with both? The Mastery seems to have a huge following because it was the first big improvement and has been around the block. The Staytrem seems to be the new favorite on the Offsets forum though.

This topic has popped up a few times before, but the threads get flooded with Mastery owners that haven't tried the Staytrem. I'm hoping the time difference between threads will lend to some more experience with the Staytrem.

Just saw those are trems for jaguar. Sorry, no experience with those. Hopefully someone knowledgeable can add their thoughts OP.

The Staytrem solves all of the problems while maintaining vintage looks and is much cheaper.

The new Mastery trem unit is scheduled for release soon. I'll need to check it out. Fully adjustable tension on the trem arm... all the way stiff to full.swingy swingy.

I like the staytrem bridge but I haven't tried the mastery. If you haven't read them already: there are also some threads on offsetguitars.com.

I own both. No question the Mastery bridge is a quality product and was the first player in the game, but the Staytrem is perfection. It has the look, the feel, the sound, the price and it solves all of the problems inherent in the original bridge design. How is that not the perfect option?

Staytrem for the win.

True, though at the time, I didn't have the option of the Staytrem, and at the end of the day I wasn't terribly concerned with vintage looks. I'd also venture that both options have some different tonal characteristics. I couldn't tell you that definitively, but one thing I really like about the mastery is that it really accentuates the ringing/overtones from behind the bridge. That may not be everyone's bag, but I think it's unique to the mastery design. I also tend to play in a lot of alternate turnings and it's been a godsend in terms of intonation.

As for the price, I've wasted more money on stupider things :)

Could not bring myself to splurge on either...

Got an Allparts Mustang bridge (with the gaps)...took saddles out, re-drilled other side to install saddles together (53.5mm), loctite in the height screws.

$20

The Staytrem bridge and replacement trem arm made my '64 Jazzmaster play like a dream!
