Is Strandberg the only company that produces multi-scale headless guitars with tremolos?

    I cannot think of any other company that produces headless tremolo systems that accommodate multi-scale. Does anyone know others?|

    anyone willing to use the t4m trem can do it.
    Off the top of my head I know that
    Marconi labs has one as a semi custom production model
    Skervesen will do it as an option
    Blackat will also do it as an option.

    other custom builders will do it too as long as they are willing to work with that trem.

    Headless with trems, yes. Headless multi-scale with trems...unfortunately not.

    My bad, I misread the thread. Multiscale/headless - yes, multiscale/headless w/trem - no

    It's also worth noting that Strandberg scale range is pretty minimal. If you're looking for a 25.5-27" fan, you can't get it from them. Most of the Strandbergs seem to be a .5" fan, to, i THINK I've seen as high as a 1".

    I think most people don't realize that it's not just mounting a bridge on an angle/angled plate. If you did that, the strings would move laterally when you used the trem and the bass strings would get pulled way high up when you pushed down on the trem bar. If you moved the one pivot point on the bass side back so that it's roughly in the same place on the saddle as the higher strings, then it still can't operate correctly because the one on the treble side would have to move up and down on the post, as well as pivot, to allow the bass side pivot point to work. And with most of trems, the saddles are behind the pivot point, which would mean that the bass side strings would rise up way high if you pressed down on the trem arm. Lots of tricky/conflicting geometry.
