No locking nut or locking tuners

Nope, not needed.

A properly cut nut and 2-3 locked windings on wound strings, and 3-4 locked windings on unwound strings stay pretty solid.

I do like locking tuners for ease of use but not for tuning stability.

I also don't believe in neck dive.

And to further piss off people, and online Asian casinos, I use 7-38's.

You "don't believe" in neck dive? Well, on those you've played, maybe... especially with the added mass of a Floyd. Do you really choose string gauge to piss off other people? Odd reasoning. On the other hand, my experience is the same as yours -- a well made nut and a solid setup make additional hardware unnecessary.

I bought one of these right when they came out a few years ago and had it on one of my SGs just until this year. They are pretty impressive devices! Not quite as extreme as a proper floyd but still, you should be able to get at least a 2 step dive. Tuning is just as stable as any other floyd. I ended up putting the locking nut on mine. I hope you enjoy yours.

The only thing I will say about these is that if you are using it full floating and do like to use it to raise pitch, be careful not to get too carried away. In that direction it can damage the finish on your guitar.....
