    The tb6 is the tremelo version of the sh6, Refering to the pole piece spacing. I would get the TB6 model if u have a floyd Rose equipped gat, or a guitar with a tremelo that has more spacing between the pole pieces than a standard fixed bridge. Either way if you get the wrong one, the pickup still sounds and works fine, maybe not on a Floyd, but on most standard tremelos.

    For a standard bridge Id order the Standard sh6
    PRS McCarty (59n, 59b)
    1990 Fender Strat Japan (SSL-1, SSL-1, APS-1)

    Orange Dual Terror Head
    Blackstar HT-5
    2 Fender 12" Cabs with Celestion G12H30, Vintage 30
    Vox Pathfiinder 15R

      I've got a non trem spaced Distortion on a guitar with a Floyd and there is no volume dropoff what so ever. It is purely a cosmetic issue as the pickup is hot enough to pick up the string vibration even if it is not directly over the pole piece.
