The Best Non-Locking Tremolo on the Market Today. Patented "Blade" Technology, Frictionless Action, and a Positionable Whammy Bar. The BladeRunner Maintains the Classic Trem Style, but Out-Performs all Other Non-Locking Tremolo Systems. String spacing is 2.1 inches. This is around 2 1/16 inches. Half way between the vintage spacing and the American Standard spacing.
The Technology Behind the BladeRunner
Whether you call it a vibrato or a tremolo, the mission was to design the ultimate locking and non-locking system that would not require any destructive modifications to your guitar, increase performance and tuning stability, yet retain the classic Stratocaster look and feel. You can install the Super-Vee and BladeRunner yourself with just basic hand tools.
The BladeRunner has a revolutionary and patented trem action know as "Blade" technology. It's integrated so well you hardly know it's there, but it is extremely dependable in bringing your guitar back to perfect pitch every time.
The key here is understanding that friction is the enemy of all vibratos. Every other trem bridge uses some form of pivot, including ball bearing pivots. Primarily due to friction and wear,all other trems seem to stick in the slightly wrong position and the zero point will continuaously drift over time. This results in relentless tuning instability and inconsistant action.
The patented BladeRunner "Blade" design is made from industrial grade, high tensile strength, tempered steel. It's completely frictionless and provides super smooth action that will never degrade or wear out. We tested every material we could to make the BladeRunner sustain block generate the best dynamic range of tone with as much sustain as possible. Our special billet aluminum formula provides the warmest tone and longest sustain on every Strat we tested. Super-Vee and BladeRunner owners have discovered this -even Eric Johnson agrees.
RIDICULOUSLY EASY TO INSTALL
