I think that is the Performance I had because I put a cross bar on mine. It helped in body flex and made the guitar more stable tuning wise. I also put the flags on the levers as they wer uncomfortabl ...

Great sounding guitars but some of them had a problem where the changer finger is at rest on the aluminum end plate. Especially on A pedal change.They will wear out a slot in the end plate which gives ...

You have to use A pedal, its what they been calling a fake split but I think its real, lol. There are several moves like minor that you can't get with it but I always use it with A pedal anyway.

On a push/pull you cannot have a solid connection between the pull rod and the changer finger.

Not Emmons for sure.
I once had an 84 Emmons D-10 push pull that didn't have any those wire hooks. Someone had gone to a smaller rod, enlarged the holes on changer fingers a tad to accommodate rods, ...

Great job Johnny. I love the tone of BMI's guitars and they are built like a tank. I never liked or understood the logic behind those big flat cross bars. Did you replace those with round cross bars?
