“I like the quality and reliability first, and I feel free to use any technique I want without timbre loss. I remember I tested the piezo system with my guitar technician , fantastic, high quality timbre. ... Bridges with tremolo and locking sistems have that teflon part that enables the timbre to sound faithfully without any loss and with perfect sustain, and, of course, the durability of all parts of Graph Tech. Locking Tremolo Bridges Graph Tech is perfect!" - Mauricio Fidelis
