God damn was this expensive to have added to my guitar. To those wondering if it changes the overall “tone” of the guitar, i would say no. Period. Bends still feel fine as long as you keep the tension right at the end of zone 2. Would i buy this again? Probably not but i have it now so, whatever. This is definitely not worth it if your doing an install on an existing guitar. Buy a guitar WITH an ET or not at all. Just my 2 cents. It comes out to over $600 to add it to a guitar unless your installing it yourself. For serious performers or people trying to lay down tracks in a studio, i think the ET would probably be a golden tool but for me? Overkill. I’m just going to grab a high quality headless next, now that i know the ET is not very important to me.
