My main guitar has been running the Shift 2001 since day one. It was the top load/no routing that caught my attention first. So nice to have a strat-style with all that extra wood.MaxWedge said:Not mentioned yet is the Wasburn Wonderbar. I have one of these(a Shift 2001) on a guitar and while it won't dive like a FR. It does stay in tune very well. Tension at the bar is heavy, but workable. I'm considering transplanting it on my Squier Strat. Surface mount makes installation a breeze. Still I beleive the FR is about as good as it gets.
