    If so, it enables the guitar to go from dive only to full floating, with a simple thumb wheel adjustment. Floating when playing "normally" and dive only when you want to drop the low E down to D.

    I dunno about that, does it look like there's one in this pic that would be visible? I'm unfamiliar with the Tremol-No.

    The unit fits in the tremolo cavity where the springs are, underneath the guitar.

    There's a new claw to install, a long shaft with the thumb wheels to set for fixed/dive only/full floating, and a part that connects to the trem block.
    Here's a quick pic; Click image for larger version.

    Not sure when I last saw Nuno actually use the bar though, so it may be blocked.

    I've never seen him use the bar. I have seen him reach back and grab the whole trem and use it that way. Which is wierd. Maybe it's blocked on some guitars and not others?
    VH III is Ed's solo album. So everybody who keeps saying they wish he'd do one needs to stfu and listen to III. Then stfu again.

    I know he used to use one, but I suspect his N4 just got jacked up over the years and rendered the bar useless. He isn't using one on his 4N on the Gen Axe tour either so I'm assuming he just goes without it because he is used to the feel of the bridge.
