    Not quite "keeps everything perfectly in tune." I just had to retune my Evertune because I had it set up for bending and the climate change pushed it over the edge.

    That won't work for wound strings that are not wound all the way to the end, like the Elixirs I use.

    That I can agree with. :cheers:

    Well, then cut the balls. Is not that bad, isn’t it?

    Nah. Not that bad If you don’t mind the setup. My point was that you don’t just need an Allen wrench, but also need a wire cutter, so one of the disadvantages of the Floyd is that you need a couple of tools to change strings and often need to retune a few times when restringing: before locking the nut, after locking the nut, and after the string stretches. No tools needed for the Evertune to change strings and they should instantly be in tune whenever you restring (although, while you don't need a cutter, you'll want one to trim the strings at the headstock).

    I completely admit I'm just lazy and there are still benefits of the fixed Floyd over the Evertune. Especially when bending. ;)
