I'm already slightly regretting using the AVRI trem vs going for the mastery.
Trying to control costs, but the arm movement is a little "crunchy" for lack of a better term.
And getting some interaction between the low E and the screw head :(

That's a damn shame, you went to the trouble to build a new guitar and it's already all scuffed up.. ;)

Somebody here knows how to get the vibrato working more smoothly. Not me. Somebody does, though. Maybe describe the problem in more detail.
