can anyone identify this tremolo
This is the guitar it is on
An Eastwood firebird
The handle looks like a Duesenberg, but I've never seen the rest of that unit before. Curious to know what it is!
Yeah that’s COOL!
You beat me to that!
Looks to be attached to a standard tailpiece. The one lone screw bothers me somewhat. It'll never replace a Bigsby.
definitely looks like a Duesy arm
A Duesy part on an Eastwood would double the price!!
Just looking for a lighter weight tremolo for an acoustic guitar.
looka like duesenberg
Looks like I would bend it into a knot in a minute. Too flimsy, imho.
Duesenberg tremolos are truly premium devices, and moreover, they are all available in LH !
Below a "Super-Tremola" on my Lefty Fake Dano :
Put an lyre-engraved chrome cover on it and it could almost pass for a Vibrola ;-)
It‘s everything but a tremolo, it‘s a vibrato...
The guitar is a Teisco reissue, afaik those vibratos were also Teisco constructions.
Odd, it does look like a Duesenberg arm indeed, but the rest looks like it can throw your guitar out of tune in the blink of an eye. I've never seen that unit before.
Agreed, I wouldn't be surprised if this contraption would accomplish vibrato & tremolo all at the same time ;-)
I wonder if a Vibrola would fit the bill. Anyone know what they weigh? They look lightweight, but I've never seen one up close.
Yeah, it seems to be the same basic concept.
