Gotoh's GE1996T is their take on the 'Floyd Rose' double locking tremolo and it is considered one of the best tremolos available, with ultimate tuning stability provided by the locking nut, locking saddles and fine tuners. This bridge features steel saddles for clarity and response with a brighter tone than brass, they feature a slightly curved top to provide hand comfort while playing. The studs can be locked in to their body anchors to give the most transmission of sound to the body. The tension holding the tremolo arm can be adjusted via a set screw in the bridge. We have the GE1996T tremolo available in three different sustain block depths, the standard 40 mm, a 36 mm and a shallower 33 mm for thinner guitar bodies.

Next to Scheller and Floyd Rose these are very good quality bridges and good value.

Excellent piece of kit
One of the posts came out of its packaging and was rattling around in the box which meant some of the gold plating came off the top of it and also the tremolo arm. Having said that, it's an excellent piece of kit, as good as Floyd Rose in my opinion. Made of premium steel and one of the knife edges is flat and not curved which is a benefit. This means if your post holes don't line up exactly with this trem, they will still fit.

No other brand offers a tremolo of this quality at this price and it’s nice that the whole system is included in the box.

Fantastic kit - totally transformed a problem guitar into the absolute best playing and sounding guitar I own (there are many). Can’t wait to replace more tremolo systems with this Gotoh! Thank you gluedtomusic!

Easily the best constructed Floyd replacement I’ve installed, fits perfectly and works flawlessly with zero play in the arm.
If I had one tiny gripe it’s that the upper “wing” with the flat knife edge is by design slightly narrower than the side the arm plugs in to which has left some of the cavity exposed but a solid hour of ridiculous dive bombing cured my OCD…
