Hi,
my Red Special does not have a knife-edge Brian May tremolo, i just have a normal tremolo instead.
What is the difference between the two in terms of vibrato?


Brian May is the Best Guitarist ever!

not sure about Slash

The difference is friction. The knife-edge tremolo has less friction which should help it return to pitch more accurately.

There are guitar forums that might be better for this type of question.
