Written by Roy Fought and William Shakespeare (not necessarily in that order or in the same space-time continuum)

To trem, or not to trem: that is no longer the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to endow with “fixed bridge” or tremolo, you may now do either effortlessly.

Strapped into Bulldog, you need not bear the slings and arrows of outrageous tuning instability—for Bulldog has always been true to pitch,
Nor must you take arms against a sea of tuning troubles and by opposing them, struggle.
All is but the calm waters of symphonic Bulldog harmony.

To die: to sleep: to jam;
No more; and by jam to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That a poorly grounded guitar is heir to, ’tis a consummation to jam and experience the magnificence of Bulldog in all its pleasing playability—fast and free flowing—electronic excellence supreme.

Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep filled with music what dreams may come?
A guitar, devoutly loyal and destine to be your new best old friend.
Bulldog dances across your vision of smiling slumber.

When we have shuffled off this mortal single coil pickup tone
Must give us pause: there’s the respect for glorious humbucker tonalities professed by Bulldog
That makes calamity of so long life quest for excellence of tone;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of non-compliant playability from a lesser instrument?

The oppressor’s tonal wrongs, the guitar man’s contumely,
Is put to rest once and for all
For Bulldog is here and is a guitar player’s best friend in any and all its manifestations:

Yes, to trem, or not to trem: that is no longer the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to endow with “fixed bridge” or tremolo, or even Floyd, you are now free and clear to jam with effortless ease and profound pitch.

Addendum: And then William asked Roy:

William: What patient merit of th' tremolo doth undertake timbre?

Roy: Ah…um…are you asking what the vintage-style tremolo bridge does for the tone of the Bulldog?

William: I say thee yea

Roy: Well, okay then, the vintage-style tremolo bridge adds a liveliness and vibrancy to the low end strings while still retaining a mid-focused theme—as you would expect from this style of instrument—very nice. And you have the advantage of excellent tremolo functionality.

William: Grammarcy, you are most kind.

Roy: Cool, William!
