Is that a Sheraton 1/2? And where did you find that cool trem arm for it!
Its an epiphone Emperor Swingster. Totally stock. As for the instability...eh, I don't use the trem much on this guitar.

The wilky on my stratalike, however, I use a boatload. Holds tune pretty well for a modern vintage design!

I would chop off my arms and legs for an old pre Gibson epi Swing or Sheraton.

I'm a big fan of offset Fenders, Jaguars, Jazzmasters and the like.

Most people really hate the bridge and the tremelo but I really dig it, but then again I'm a big fat shoegazer geek so i'm bound to...

I have a really hard time getting a good sound with the Jaguar and Jazzmaster tremolos for some reason! I guess I'm more of a Floyd trem guy. I do love Fenders though. Right now I'm playing a Telecaster Custom HH and I've never loved a guitar more. I'm paying off an American Standard Strat right now though, with a tremolo. My tele doesn't have one and I desperately need it. I'm a shoegazer too, haha.

Let your style of music be your guide, and pick your guitar based on that musical choice. Explore the benefits and drawbacks of each individual guitar. As you can see, it's an individual choice that you need to make, based on what kind of music you intend to play. Also, one might consider owning more than one guitar, in order to play whatever your choice of different musical style's may be.

On the other hand dont let the expected style of a guitar limit its possibilities. Dont not get a tele because you think its only great for country.

The quest for the ultimate tone is a constant struggle for guitarists. I've yet to meet a guitarist who is wholly satisfied with every aspect of their sound.

This isnt so much to do with a specific guitar as it is a specific technique for playing guitar. Im interested in bettering myself in the tremolo style of playing. I hear Srv use it from time to time and utilizes the sound to make for a great change of pace. Instead of just the expected shredding of scales and riffs hammer ons etc, etc. Its rather tricky to use this method of picking accuratley enough to control the timing of it. Just wondering if anyone else has mastered this style of play and may know any helpful tricks. Id like to be able to incorporate it into some of my material when im playing and change up the monotony of my solos. Heres an example of what im talkin about....notice how easily he seems to be able to strum at that super fast rate of speed. im not talking about the picking..just the struming.
