At this rate, every Love Rock on the forum is going to get a faber kit.

Not a bad thing!

The STP is aluminium or I believe you can order one in Titanium!
The Faber kit has the aluminium rings, the posts are NOT aluminium

Tonight it was the first gig I've done since installing the kit, absolutely fantastic!!
I'll tell you the improvements I've found at gig levels, my post on the forum has been at garage levels

Clearer notes, much more control of tone in just picking, soft to hard, more resonsive
Attack is greatly improved, sustain... well it used to be great now it just hangs there forever (with a little help of pedals of course, but I've always had them even before the mod)

So there goes the, keep my Tokai stock standard out the window LOL
Well worth the money
Great improvement IMHO

The rings and tailpiece are alu, but I believe you have to specify that you want aluminium as I think they come in steel as well.

If you want one, send a message to togps on this forum, he's the one who sells them.

Where on earth did you find that beauty ?

Is the bridge solid brass ?

I'd already taken you advice on lightweight aluminium stop tailpieces Gottfried

I got this from www.Pigtailmusic.com






I got the idea after I saw the photo's you posted of the Jeff Beck Style Love Rock that you had specially made - Another stunning guitar.

This guy is so good, he makes stuff for NASA !!!

Yes, Chrisheyes, I agree.
But forgive me, its STP looks ugly and not original.
I am sure it intonates 100%.

But Chris look here:

There is also from Pigtail a very nice looking and EXPENSIVE $ 129 ALU STP (He makes stuff for NASA )

I am not sure if it meets the intonation on Tokai models - without ABR bridge - equipped only with a STP.
Following my communication with Forum member Jim Jones it does not!
Somebody should check it. Maybe me??
