    Default Interesting post about the 5150 Steinberger



    I love Dave but I would love to see the Hagar era stuff live too. Any thoughts?

    Only if he's finally going to use it for DAVE'S version of Summer Nights!

    supposedly, they wrote that for him initially before he bailed....

    It would be nice for Ed to use his on a record/tour. Props to him for wanting to use the transtrem again. I don't even get along with a floyd that isn't blocked.

    This is mine:



    It's just a GT-Pro, though. Fairly easy to string up and get going.

    n 1984, Ned introduced the TransTrem System for his guitar (the bass version coming later, in June 1987). The TransTrem allowed the guitarist to bend all six strings in relative pitch to each other—which allows for whole chord bending or slide guitar sounds. This development was the most significant improvement of the guitar’s vibrato system since the pioneering work of Paul Bigsby in the mid Forties. What’s more, the TransTrem was built with a unique stepped locking device that allowed all of the strings to be locked in a whole new key! The range of keys made possible by the TransTrem included B, C, D, E, F#, and G. Not only did this feature make the use of a capo unnecessary (in most cases), it also allowed the guitarist to tune the whole guitar down by one or two steps. If a guitarist broke a string, all they had to do was lock the TransTrem in the centre position and they could complete the song—the guitar would stay in tune because neither the bridge nor the neck was influenced by the loss of tension! Naturally, one of the greatest innovators of electric guitar playing, Eddie Van Halen, was the first person to see the potential of this new device and put it to great use on his album, 5150 (listen to ‘Summer Nights’). With his custom painted Steinberger (signature red, black, and white stripes) Eddie wrote music utilizing the TransTrem System and those songs still cannot be reproduced without this amazing guitar bridge.
