    That is a great idea!
    My allen wrench is held on the back of my headstock with a lump of old duct tape. This would be a major improvement.

    Great idea... the only thing I worry about is people like me who will use all the extra leverage the bar will give you and strip out ALL of our allen screw holes...

    Just a pity that the EBMM doesnt have a floyd rose arm on it !! They are held in with a small grub screw on the bottom of the arm !! There are a few EBMM EVH with original floyds on them, but they are really rare .

    Being a bit heavy handed myself I'd probly do the same thing. The key would be to not grip the bar so far away from the wrench end. I wonder if the hex key is an insert or if it's forged/machined onto the bar. The former being more desirable than the latter as one could simply replace a worn out insert as opposed to the whole bar.

    And I thought that little wrench holder that you screw into your headstock was great.
    I didn't read it. But does it come with the bushing?

    It's a cool idea but yeah, it is expensive.
    As I'm looking at it ... I'm thinking it might not be too hard to just make something similar yourself.

    Actually, instead of the collar type design they have, I'm wondering why you couldn't just grind the hex key shape into the bar itself.
