I saw this clip and thought, so many people have flipped the control plates around on their Teles, this is a reasonable alternative to that.
That concept of continuous improvement is also evident in the design of various bridges and other components of electric guitars.
I like the improvements Gotoh has made to the original Floyd Rose design (nicer saddles, a nylon bushing in the arm hole allowing you to perfectly set the desired tension, et cetera).
Adding locking mechanisms to tuners is another.
I'm wondering which of the tweaks and improvements to these basic designs you think are the most helpful.
Or, would you have preferred that they left things the way they were in the good old days?
