Recently I was at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, NJ filming the last 6 or so reviews that we posted, and while talking to studio proprietor Kevin Antreassian the conversation turned to the subject of EverTune bridges. It turned out that hanging on the wall was the ESP that Ben Weinman used to test out the system before committing to one in his signature model. So we asked Kevin to give us a quick rundown of what it is and how it works.

It was nice to see that although he had it set to essentially zero vibrato (which could be really useful in some situations, because I often have to watch out for unintentional bends when I’m playing some jazzy chord with a 6th and 9th or something in it), you can alternatively have the EverTune configured to allow all the bends you want.

So if you’re looking at the new ESP Ben Weinman or Ken Susi models, or are just planning on installing an EverTune in a guitar you currently own, check out Kevin’s take on it below.
