    Tremol-no on a JP

    Anyone install a tremol-no on the JP and does it work well enough to drop a standard tuned guitar to drop D and back again with no issues? Thanks!

    I haven't used one on a JP, but I did have one on a PRS. To be honest, I would just cut a small piece of maple, or even a piece of aluminum and screw it to the body with as small a screw as you can use. The Tremolo-No, Hipshot and all the others are really a pain to set up and I always had tuning issues because whenever you start adding moving parts, you get friction and the trem will never return to the exact spot.

    Yeah, I am a little scared to do any mods to my EBs that requires drilling. Might not be worth it. I should probably just use the challenge of learning D tuned songs using the third fret of my 7. Haha!

    There is another option that will take a little more skill in woodshop. Cut a "J" shaped piece of wood to fit over the block that will stop it against the body.

    My JP actually keeps tuning pretty correct just going down to drop D. I try not to use the whammy, but otherwise it works pretty well. No tremel-no needed. I would think with that added 7th string to keep all the forces at bay, your 7 would probably be better than my 6 at dropping without much change in tuning.

    I used the original screws of the tremolo for the tremol-no. So no non-reversable modifications were necessary to install it.

    I've used Tremol-No with my JP6 few months now, and it had worked nicely. I lock the trem usually when I'm recording rhythm parts or when I know that I'm gonna do unison bends. Easy and quick to do, takes less than 5 seconds to lock/unlock. The installing was surprisingly easy to do, haven't had any issues with friction or tuning in general.

    I've just got one of these...

    DropTunePedal - Polyphonic Down Tuning | Morpheus Effects

    By FAR the easiest way to get all sorts of de-tunes with no messing about with the guitar whatsoever.

    Highly recommended.

    Ugh, not to rain on your parade but I highly de-recommend it. Haha! Half a step is OK, but beyond that you can hear the notes not holding together as well. You also need to be playing really loud so you don't hear your standard tuned guitar along with the detuned one through the amp. It's hard to describe without hearing it, but I sold mine after toying with it for a couple weeks. The only thing I ended up liking was the octave down on clean, so kinda sounded like a bass.

    Is there any other way?

    I understand that it won't be to everybody's taste, but I mostly use mine for exactly that - loud and distorted de-tunes to E flat, D and sometimes C. Wouldn't use it below that really.

    Works pretty well for me in these circumstances, especially when you consider the hassles of de-tuning a floating trem guitar

    I've got a tremol-no on my JPX and it works perfectly. I've got it permanently set to down only It makes string breaks, tuning, alternate tunings, etc. non-issues. Very easy to set up, I didn't notice any extra friction or squeaks. I also added a fourth spring so that I can do double-stop bends in tune with no hassles.
