Shameless Tru-Arc Puffery: Who’s got ‘em?

26

No need to consider one. Just buy two and don't look back. You will be glad that you did.

27

I know. I had an AL-120 on a 6120 and a ST-120 on a DuoJet. Just loved the sound and the playability differences on both.

Thinking of another ST-120 for my -58 Gent, maybe a brass for the Falcon and the -59.

Crap.........................looks like three ;-)

28

Love the Tru-Arc on my 5120. It makes it a better guitar. Probably will get one for my Casino. Question: Is the rocking bar bridge supposed to be used only in tandem with a Bigsby, or can it also be used for a guitar with a fixed tailpiece (trapezoid or other)?

30

Not famous nor very talented, but still appreciative of my TruArc

31

I vote you move Paul Pigat into the first group. He's the man and is getting a lot more recognition as a great player and a Gretsch user.

33

I got three.One stainless for my 6120 DSW and for my 6121-1955 Chet Atkins and an AL-one on my DeArmond 75 T. ;-) ;-)

34

I am somewhat surprised and dismayed that I did not make the Big Fish in a little Pond list, Timbo??

36

We're all big fish in our own little ponds, Billy! :D

37

I would never presume to say I should belong on any list, but I do have a SS Tru-Arc on my 6122-58, and need to order a couple more (including a custom job for the 6070 bass).

Glad you're in business, Tim. Not even a hint of puffery - filling a serious need for which there are no other alternatives. Kudos.

I am using a Gretsch RBB now. *

39

If you need a 16" radius, just let Tim know. Custom work available.

I may need to talk about a custom "tall-boy" version.

41

Thanks crowbone, I do plan on ordering a TA or two here directly. And it was really a poke at Proteus, I thought it curious that there were none of the fairer represented.

42

I got the stainless steel TruArc on my tri-Armond Anniversary - with that and a brass nut it added a nice touch to the twang. I don't have any before/after clips but I'd say there's a bit more "presence" with the TruArc than the brass rocking bar I had on there before. The stock rocking bar is nice, but when you go to the bar, why not go top shelf, you know?

43

As the European distributor of Tru-Arc I am very pleased to see this.

Nick, I have your order, thanks, just waiting for a shipment...

44

SS on my 3140.

Took an AL off my 3967 as it was causing buzzing bcause of the slot angle.

Thinking about it for my 6129 (currently has a space control).

I'm famous for my 70's dwarf porn career, not my music. Still have the 'stache', though.

45

I've got my Stainless on the Jet with T'Armonds and an aluminum on my 6120 with P90s. Love em!

46

Yep, got me a darn fancy stainless TA for my Pro Jet :)

47

Ive had a few on different Jets.

But now I need an indorsement........and

It´s for a Strat.....figure that one out.

I'm surprised I was even allowed to post n this thread being just a rogue bacteria in a stagnant swamp.

You guys are right. Everyone belongs on the list, of course - then there just wasn't room for it!

My apologies, fellers. What I was trying to use as a criteria was "has the player had music out in commercial release to the public, and is it available through some kind of distribution"...

But in these days of modern times, that's probably not a valid filter, as if we're online, we're "public figures" to one extent or another.

And even by my own criteria, I left out a few guys whose albums I have and enjoy - billyd, silverjetstaff, Tommy59 - and crowbone coming up. I'm sure Bear recorded-and-released during his long tenure as a professional player, too, so I failed again. You always hurt the ones you love, huh?

Beyond that, I know I'm not fully aware of the recording/performing history of all my customers.

Didn't mean to slight anyone...

Shouldna posted.

Shuffling off now, head hanging.

Jimbo asked: Question: Is the rocking bar bridge supposed to be used only in tandem with a Bigsby, or can it also be used for a guitar with a fixed tailpiece (trapezoid or other)?

And the answer is that a rocking bar can be used on a fixed-tail guitar. But I also have a model that doesn't rock (and puts more metal on the mounting posts) for that application. It's called "Rock Steady." (Not because it rocks, which it doesn't, but because it's steady as a rock. And you can rock with it. Steadily.)
