  TRADITION  G1200 PRO GUITAR in BLACK CHERRY BURST   History Tradition Guitars was founded in 1998 from the ideas of music industry veteran Jim Matthews. Tradition Guitars began its humble beginnings in a horse barn in Indiana. Jim was a true veteran of the musical instrument market. He had spent more than 30 years of his life selling, marketing, and developing instruments. After years of witnessing the success as well as the failure of many well known guitar companies, Tradition Guitars was formed. Jim’s idea was simple...
Offer the highest quality instrument for an affordable price to the independent dealer.
Tragedy struck in 2004 when Tradition lost its founder. But Jim's dream still lives on today. Jim Matthews’ family and partners took the reins and have vowed to make Tradition Guitars the company that Jim always knew it could be. Today Tradition Guitars is recognized nationally and internationally for the quality and value they represent. Our guitars are represented in almost every state in the United States as well as 9 other countries. Tradition Guitars is proud to announce that they will be releasing over 20 new model colors and model variations in the second half of 2006. Philosophy At Tradition Guitars we continually strive to give the musician a high quality tool to create their art. It is our goal to provide high quality instruments at an affordable price. How do we do that? Tradition Guitars has gone back to the “old way” of building guitars. Our company is made up of guitar and bass players. We take our ideas, build a prototype and present it to one of the many professional players using our guitars. We take the feedback and and make any changes necessary to refine the final model. We are always looking for ways to give a better value to the musician. Have you picked up a Tradition lately?
You’ll be surprised at what we are capable of offering to any type of guitar player.
   The G1200 PRO includes the new Trem King Fixed Bridge Vibrato System that 'Stays in Tune'
Trem King, The Fixed Bridge Vibrato System The TREM KING Vibrato System was born out of the desire of a player to have a useable vibrato for guitar that stays in tune all the time. Whether you are dive-bombing, doing reverse bends, drop tuning or playing double stops, the TREM KING will do just that. The Fixed Bridge Concept The newly patented TREM KING is a vibrato system for guitars that uses the fixed bridge concept. The bridge plate is fixed to the body of the guitar. The saddles are fixed to the bridge and do not move. The intonation point and string height never change as with many other designs. All the action happens inside the guitar. And the best part is NOTHING happens until you touch the vibrato bar. The Vibrato Action The bar inserts directly into the tone block for the best leverage. The tone block pivots back and forth to provide the vibrato action. The TREM KING is able to act as a fixed bridge because the critical balance of string tension versus spring pressure combined with the patented Tension Bar. The tone block only moves when the vibrato bar is moved. When you use the vibrato bar, the tension bar brings the tone block back to the same Zero Point time after time. Two springs are normally all that are necessary to provide this balance. This allows for very light (2 lbs.) pressure to actuate the vibrato. The feel is precise and smooth. Get A Grip Along with the exclusive Grip Tip Vibrato Bar that has an adjustable rubber tip, the TREM KING is a joy to play. There is no locking nut necessary on the TREM KING. You can drop tune and not have to re-tune all the other strings. If you break a string while playing, your guitar will stay in tune and you can finish the song. The strings are easily and quickly replaced by loading through the bottom of the tone block with no cutting or special tools necessary. The TK-1 is a drop in replacement for most vintage style tremolo units. Some routing inside the spring cavity may be needed on certain models. Installation instructions and a template showing the necessary cutout is provided with each unit.The TK-2 is designed for guitars that have a slanted single coil pickup mount on the bridge plate. The vibrato works exactly the same as the TK-1, but uses a different bridge plate. Routing of a spring cavity is necessary for installation.The TK-3 is designed for other style solid and semi-hollow body guitars with no existing trem route. This model features a smaller footprint than traditional trems. The TK-3 functions the same as the other models.
