I've had a Strat with a Wilkinson trem forever - but I like to do oblique false-pedal steel bends alot, and with the Strat the notes I'm holding always went sourly out of tune. I've leaned heavily on my Tele and 335 for the last several years, but I always miss having a bar ... I recently played a Jazzmaster reissue for the first time - and I loved it! Partly the pickups - but largely because for whatever reason, the guitar stayed in tune as I bent one note and held two down (and then I could use the vibrato bar on the chord). If the chord did go sour, it was slight enough that I could live with it. I suppose it is because the Jazzmaster trem is more "stiff" than what I've used before, but I can live with that. As a start to think about a future guitar (I get my master's degree in May and deserve to celebrate) - what types of tremolo systems could I consider that handle oblique bends better than what I'm used to? I suppose I should mention I'm really not looking for Van Halen style dive bombs or anything.
