My palm hits bridge on my JTV69 while I play, is there a cover I can install?

Recommended Posts

My palm hits the bridge on my JTV69 while I play, is there a cover I can install? I love my JTV69 but that super cool floating bridge goes sharp sometimes when I play, my hands are big, I am wondering if anyone else has that problem and if they ever thought about putting a cover to rest their palm while they play.

I think the only solution you're gonna find is one of the various tremelo blockers that are out there. I've got a Tremel-No in my 69, cause I'm not a whammy bar guy. You can set it to fixed, dive-only, or full floating, so you've got options. If you can live with dive-only, it'll solve the problem of notes going sharp when you rest on the bridge.

I will look into the Teme!-No, I asked my set up guy if I could lock it, (I don't use a trem) and he told me no, the bridge has to float to get my nice sounds I get. Not sure what to think about his remark. will the Teme!-No change the sound?

If you think about it long enough you'll probably have a stroke, because it's nonsense. The modeling has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the bridge floats. The 59's have a fixed bridge, and the modeling is identical. Might be a nice guy, but he has no idea what he's talking about.

If they had a fixed bridge (Hard Tail) option for the 69 I would have bought that.  I really don't use the trem.  The arm has only been on mine twice.

I played my guitar for months before having it set up by this guy, It was super cheap and when he was done it played like a dream, he showed me how nice the strings ring while the guitar is unplgged and he said that is because the bridge is now properly set up and needs to "float" . ok, all greak to me I don't care this thing is so nice and the sustain is like FOREVER!  So I just want to make sure all of the above is not affected when a make "whatever" I choose Mod for the palm problem I have. I never said the modelling would be different just the nice clean natural guitar sounds I get. I know the modeling is done in the bridge pickup.

 

I think the Tremel-No is worth a try.

Thanks,

guys, I have seen Chappers block video, kinda rad for me

For me, the open string sustain is much more influenced by the nut than the bridge.  Fixed or floating bridge can have great sustain if the nut is cut properly.  Rigid endpoints are what create good sustain.
