    Dues Les Trem II

    Duesenberg Les Trem 2Published on 09/26/18 at 09:20

    I'm a guitar novice who likes tinkering with electric guitars. I've been updating aspects of my Epiphone Les Paul 100. One of the modifications I recently made was the replacement of the factory tail piece with the Duesenberg Les Trem II.

    This review only covers installation. I haven't strung it yet to play it, and I can't really play, so my opinion in that area wouldn't be worth much anyway. Read the other reviews for comments on usability.

    I'm a guitar novice who likes tinkering with electric guitars. I've been updating aspects of my Epiphone Les Paul 100. One of the modifications I recently made was the replacement of the factory tail piece with the Duesenberg Les Trem II.

    I have a right-hand version of the Trem II.

    After waiting for over a week (internationally, this is probably fairly quick) for my Trem II to arrive from Germany, I was very disappointed that it wasn't going to fit. It was obvious when attempting to screw in the mounting posts that they were going in at an angle and the Trem II holes were slightly two wide for the guitar.

    The tail piece holes on the 100 were approximately 1-2mm narrower (I didn't actually measure) than the Trem II mounting holes. I read online that someone else had a similar problem and was still able to mount the Trem II by making its mounting holds slightly larger using a Dremmel, but I didn't want to go through all that trouble. I probably would have screwed it up anyway.

    However, I tried a couple of different approaches, and finally got it mounted. I didn't use the washers, though I don't think that would have mattered either way.

    First, I screwed in the right post all the way flush, then backed it out 1/2 to 1 revolution.

    Next, using only my hands (and keeping the left hole lined up horizontally, I pushed the Trem II toward the right as hard as I could with my right hand as I slowly threaded the left post into the tail piece mounting hole using my left hand.

    It went in at a very slight angle at first, but after a couple of slow resisted turns, I felt the post "pop" (for a lack of a better term) into the post hole. Once this happened, the post was perpendicular and screwed in and out easily.

    I finished by tightening both mounting posts with a screw driver.

    The left post hole or post screw might now have a threading issue (but I don't think so), but I don't ever intend to take it off. So if it does, oh well.

    I realize that there are folks out there that are probably horrified by this technique, but it does appear to be properly aligned and solidly mounted to the guitar with enough surface clearance.

    I could have knocked off stars because the Trem mounting holes didn't line up with the guitar's tail piece holes, but I didn't because I feel that's probably an Epiphone manufacturing tolerance issue rather than a Duesenberg manufacturing issue.

    The amount I paid included shipping to the US.

    good stuff

    vibrato for paul.
    I have not had to change my lp custom. just added a Tunomatic skate.
    I can be bridged to graphite.
    holds well the rope without a proper tune with race. accurate.
    good quality.

    It easily installs in place of the tailpiece. the 10th of mm must be very careful .. comes with two different thread and 2 Clées.
    bought € 78 including delivery on ebay at edinger-guitars. received one week after.

    reserved only: it does not mount. and the forward handle is bloody. bigsby compared to that closer to the handle of the easel. Me, I'm not used.
    I will try to stall a spring for a small can of course go to the ropes. (just 1/2 ton is enough for me.) I like having a choice …

    I've had it a week, installed on a brand paul vig (or yds) eruption. The tremolo costing 75 euros, and is very simple to install.

    While I was there, and for the best deal possible holding, I took a tunomatic bearings and a set of Kluson Locking (40 euros each, cheap in total. Purchased direct from Rocking Teutonic north). No drilling etc, while exchange (fifteen minutes maximum).

    The action of the tremolo is pretty light, feeling very ideal for meowing at Vai and chords vibrated to Setzer, top and bottom. Disagreement, which is remarkable given the simplicity of the product. Be said that with the tunomatic bearings plus mechanical lock that remains is that the saddle point teaser. Note:…

    The action of the tremolo is pretty light, feeling very ideal for meowing at Vai and chords vibrated to Setzer, top and bottom. Disagreement, which is remarkable given the simplicity of the product. Be said that with the tunomatic bearings plus mechanical lock that remains is that the saddle point teaser. Note: the angle of the strings is less mechanical saddle-broken on the vig eruption than a les paul, so hopefully more conducive to the holding of agreement.

    The arm is very well made, adjustable in both length and angle (high-low), and runs just firm enough to not flipping out.

    Vibrato excellent, I had a bigsby is not the same (more clumsy and less good feeling), and to put the strings on the hopper 2 is without rival.

    Anyway I am super happy with the transaction! I recommend, especially if the guitar has a switch away from the mic stand (I presented on the lag roxane TREM2 on my 500 and I struggled to switcher).

    From the very beautiful book, the look is also delicious, high-end.

    Simple and effective ....

    A product I would like to see more often: simple, effective and reasonable price. Installed in 5 minutes, without any modification of the guitar allows very subtle vibrato effects, a real alternative to the Bigsby, much more convenient and accurate use. Awesome !!!!!!
