Just wondering if Steve, Thomas or any of the Breed have played with the TransPerformance "The Performer" bridge which apparently can self tune guitar strings?

Are auto-tuner solutions a help or a hinderance for performance (would be a bummer if "The Performer" decided to peform something different than what Steve had in mind!!).

No they don't but I guess it would be an interesting idea to try. They would have to see if it would involve changing the sound of the instrument due to new parts, and I can't see Steve giving Evo up for such treatment

Yes, it's possible the tuner could change a Guitar's sound. It seems fairly bulky and involves drilling a cavity in the guitar for the LCD "tuneout" display.

I certainly wouldn't expect Steve to jeprodize Evo or Flo, but perhaps he has another experimental Ax that Thomas could try Performer on.

Can the transperformance even be set up on a fully floating trem???

by the looks of it it doesnt seem possible
