510T series does not follow conventional vintage style, but instead pursues the goal of greater tremolo functionality. It has a low clearance arm system of our own design. To guarantee a strong and hard-wearing tremolo blade, extremely resilient chromium molybdenum steel was adopted for the plate. It’s finished with high-grade heat treatment and precision machining.
There are a 6 pivot point type, the same as the synchronized style and a 2 pivot point anchor nut type, which incorporates stud lock (PAT.)* In addition, GOTOH’s original FST feature (PAT.) between the saddle and ball end, keeps the strings from touching the plate. Because of them, the unit’s ability to return to tune when using the tremolo arm is significantly improved. The 510TS comes with the popular steel block as standard.
*Stud lock (PAT.) system mechanically fixes the clearance between anchor and stud bolt, eliminating loss of sound transmission to the body.
