About This Item

Tried-and-true 1950s technology! This is the workhorse 6-screw-mount tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent-steel adjustable saddles.

Includes mounting screws, steel block, five tension springs, spring mounting claw, .050" allen adjustment wrench, and removable 10-32 thread tremolo arm with plastic knob.

New bridge with vintage appeal: distressed look of the Relic Chrome plating is perfect for repairing old guitars, when shiny new hardware just won't do.

Fits Yamaha SE 300 like the original

By

Verified Buyer


I wasn't certain that this would fit my Strat copy, but the detailed measurements gave me enough confidence to order. The question was really about how closely Yamaha had mimicked Fender screw spacing and body depth. This is exactly like the original. Another bonus - intonation was also surprisingly close right out of the box. I give it four rather than five stars because it doesn't come with a trem arm stabilizer spring - minor issue.

Excellent upgrade for a Strat!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this bridge to upgrade a Squier Strat. It is of fantastic quality, better quality metal thus larger mass which leads to increased sustain. Was easy to install, adjust and intonate. This, coupled with Gotoh tuners made a world of difference.

No directions?

I bought this to build a guitar but it didn't come with any directions on how to install it or spring tension or adjustment.

Gotoh = Quality. I installed it in a Warmoth partcaster - excellent sound and look!

Good value

Relatively easy to fit, and feels substantial. Adds a bit of magic to the tone of Frankenstrat III (as do the wonderful golden age pickups bought at the same time).

Change faulty tremolo

By

Verified Buyer


This Gotoh Tremolo was easy to set in a strat put together from parts. I had to plug the Tremolo mount holes and redrill. Its was an easy job and the strat plays great.

Better than expected.

I bought this for a body I ordered. The tremolo block is solid. I still made this a fixed bridge by shoving taped pennies between the body and the block, but I am very happy with the price and the quality of this item. I love Stewmac!

Gotoh Strat Bridge

Back again. Reviewed one of these bridges a few years ago. Picked up another one for a Classic 50's, dropped it in and instantly improved the guitar. These are made with attention to detail. Compare the bridge plate and saddles of these to what comes on the guitar, especially the screw/bridge contact point, and you'll chuck the stock one and never look back!

Easy swap and a way to go! Very dependable product and an amazing upgrade from the 'ol stock bridges.
