A bit, although take that with a grain of salt. My ears bleed if I'm off a few cents.
That said, I'm not quite sure if I'm going to stick with the tremol-no being locked down. For some reason, I'm getting a ton of resonance through the bridge, and it's really hard to keep the strings muted (like beyond what I'd consider normal).
EDIT: at this point I'm sick of mucking around with it, so I've decided to just leave it in hardtail mode. Dropping the pickups down a bit helped actually, and it sounds a lot less treble-y which is an added bonus.
