but no ordinary tremolo
Don Ramsay - linear tremolo
let's see one in action
that looks like a synth pickup to boot!
the beauty of this design is that the base plate of the tremolo moves in a direction parallel with the body - no pivoting here!

can be installed on True Temperament guitars
there are plans to implement piezo systems in the design
the design can be incorporated in fanned fret systems
I love the dual tremolo arms
this design is fantastic
go have a look around at the linear tremolo site - plenty of fun!
now without going into details, Don Ramsay is going through a bit of a rough patch. this design and this designer needs to be preserved - and championed.
I would ask that the readers of new guitar design go to the linear tremolo site and send Don an email, with the following message in the heading - and nothing else.
"take care and get well soon Don, we are here for you,mate.EOM"
what a brilliant piece of design
