I like the way you think Calum.
Because cabinet drop and individual guitar resonances vary, I suggest individual tuning charts for each guitar you own (or will own).

It's a DPDT, center on switch.
I'm sure there are electronics supply companies in France.
Also, it's a fairly standard switch common in regular guitars.

Why would there be a barrel on the B pedal, 5th string?
Or did you misspell C pedal?

I'd add it to P4 or perhaps a right-footed P7. I don't like having to hit a half-stop for the G note.

Mark, I'm not really a mechanical genius, but seems to be it would be nigh on impossible without another hole in the B string changer finger. That's how you achieve splits on a guitar without screws. ...

I agree with Brian; that didn't leave the factory like that.
I'd venture to say that the entire undercarriage is aftermarket, and fortunately by a cat who knew what s/he was doing.

It works well because it is full of solid mechanical stops.
Those with pull-release guitars will tell you that, once properly set, will be rock solid when it comes to tuning stability.

For what sort of value of "reasonable"?
The L-120 is a classic, but more expensive than the Moyo.
The Stage One is getting rave reviews.

I'd have to see these on my big monitor to make sense of it. But if a string lowers, something has to pull it back.

Sometimes Jerry will rewind Sho-Bud pickups, and sometimes he only rewinds his, and makes his own.
But if you tell him you want to sound like a Bud, he'll make you something close.

The pull-release was the student model (Bud called it Maverick), and the pro model was all-pull.

Look at the rods that lower (such as the E lowers) a string. $2 says they have a return spring atta ...

There are several configurations of SPDT switches, so it won't be simple to say "do this".
My favorite mode is to use a simple SPST (Single Pole, Single Throw).

The variety of hand truck you need is an "appliance hand truck."
They're usually around 150 bucks, and I'd rather just rent one from U-haul for the occasional gigs that need them. I think t ...

My personal beef with the E-66 isn't about tone, but envelope.
Something in its windings reduces the responsiveness, the 'bite' more than most other 'buckers.
I call it the Soul Suppressor.

If you've narrowed it to the "split" screws, you could put a dab of Plasti-Dip on the very tips of the screws: Plasti-Dip is the rubbery stuff designed to make hand tools rubber-gripped.

The all-pull isn't quite like the Floyd Rose floating tremolo, until either raises or lowers get overtuned.
The scissors (or bars on the old Buds) MUST rest on the stop bar until you pull them.
