I don't think I'll ever use the tremolo arm, though, I just unscrewed the thing and stored it.
Tuning wasn't so much the issue, sustain was always a bit worse....which is vexing. That and snapping a string is fatal, with a solid you just ignore it and finish the song. Which is obviously more of a concern gigging, which I haven't done in ten years.
Speaking up its about time for my biannual tuss rod adjustment.
