I prefer guitars with tremolos however, I do not even bother putting the bar in because I do not use tremolos. I have found the play-ability to be some what improved with a tremolo. (Now I have only found this with PRS guitars and this does not hold true for Fender guitars as almost all my Strats are blocked off. However the springs are installed and do effect their tone.) I have found that PRS guitars with a trem are a little more comfortable to play. I have never really paid attention as to why that is. I have noticed that when I play and I go for a full step or step and a half bend that the trem lifts slightly and I guess I have done this for so long I am used to the tension and prefer the slight let off when I bend notes, The pitch also seems to be more accurate. I have also picked out guitars I perceive to be more resonate and it turns out these are also PRS guitars with trems. I have noticed when I play a note resonance and sound are greatly improved with trems that have trem springs. I took off the back plate and layed a towel across the springs and found there to be less resonance. So I guess I am asking, is it odd to prefer guitars with trems when I do not use trems? Also, has anyone else noticed the above observations when it comes to guitars with trems VS without trems?
