Hello fellow FDP followers.<br /> <br /> I recently had the pleasure of demoing a Fender Modern Player Mustang. Beautiful in every respect and very toneful as well as a well thought out neck. I was ready to pull the trigger.<br /> <br /> Then there's the vibrato bar. After 50+ plus years you think they would have done something about it. But if you look at the tremolo bar sideways the thing instantly goes out of tune.<br /> <br /> It seems I've read somewhere a long time ago that if you put a different bridge on it that it would settle down. <br /> <br /> Can anyone assist? Is there a way to keep that guitar in tune?<br /> <br /> Any information would be appreciated.<br /> <br /> Merry Christmas to you all.<br /> <br /> Thanks,<br /> <br /> Dan

Never had an issue with the modern or vintage Mustangs I've used, but I rarely, rarely even attached the bar (too much work with the set screw).<br /> <br /> The only trem action I've ever gotten on Mustangs is divebombing the lipstick bridge with my picking hand, and as long as it's set up properly, not an issue at all.

At 5:33 of this video the player really goes at the whammy. Sounds decent afterwards to me.
