    I was under the impression that I could order a stoptail on a CU24 or a CU22 anytime I wanted. When I run across any stoptails, they are usually CU22's. I can never get the tremolo bridges as low as I would like them to be but the stoptails can get really low. I think I'd prefer a stoptail on all my guitars actually, but they aren't stock and I don't want to wait to get one exactly the way I'd want it made.

    Sweet guitar with a great top. Very surprised it's not a 10. And this is one of my favorite colors, but I'm a little biased.

    The stoptail effect is very real. Why it's not more popular, I don't understand.

    Me neither.

    Would love to see the stop tail on a Custom 24 at least as an Artist Package option.
    IMHO just adding a stop tail to a regular Cu24 shouldn't be something you have to bother the good guys from the Private stock team with ;)

    You can go with a P24 if you want to avoid PS prices. At least the initial run was without a trem.

    Here's a pic of the prototype.

    Not to throw fuel on your GAS fire, but I played mine last night and found that it has an unexpected ability as a time machine. I had just started playing and when I looked up 2 hours had passed. If you are patient, you can find them used. I'm happy I did.
