Bendmaster Setup - or - How great The Chad (and this forum) is!

Post by drsyn67 on Sat Jan 06, 2018 1:55 pm

OK... so it only took me a few years to finally FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, but I think new determination and good information has paid off. 

I've been the guy to acquire a few Westones with Bendmasters (FT and Deluxe) and just shy/stoopid/sloppy/slothenly to invest the time in making these tremelos work.  I finally manned-up and am probably writing a book over beginner's luck, but I got the damn'd thing staying in-tune (for now?) Cool

The Chad (forum member) PM'd me a six-steps to setup a while back.  I'm not going to post them here now because it could result in a mutiny among our members as to what is sorted and what is not (or as us Americans say: "How it's done and how it ain't done").  So, if you're new at it (and with Chad's permission), I will share it via PM only. I will disclose the following:

#1:  Pray. Never a bad step: Pick your deity. Mine gets made fun of alot, but no one can find his grave.
#2:  PM Barry, Corsair and/or The Chad and tell them you've heard good things. These are a few of the dedicated folks here... you'll see others if you check the Memberlist link and Sort by Number of Posts.
#3:  Watch Youtube videos of Floyd Rose or similar setup... as Barry said "they're all pretty much the same"  (see post ISO Bendmaster setup videos)
#4:  Follow those steps and you're halfway there.

Dumb luck but the intonation & action perfect on the first two completed. Going for "3" later today.  Childlike excitement... again, apologies for War & Peace.
