Sterling JP60 – Floating Trem…Decked?
Just took delivery of a new SbMM JP60 in Mystic Dream (quite stunning of course). I will assume this guitar and all of John’s sig models are meant to be used setup with the trem floating. My question being…I am blown away by the overall feel of this guitar…but can I “deck” the trem? The way the body is cut initially says no, but I may be wrong. I very rarely use the trem as I have a very strong vibrato hand and play classic rock. A few 80’s songs might use it but…
Can I block the trem and keep it “happy”? It took me about 12-15 minutes tonight to tune the guitar as the seller de-tuned it at least a full octave. I get the whole floating thing, but have stayed away due to bends sending other strings out of tune…though I will say I didn’t notice that for the little bit I played it at a gig.
