Golden Age Bridge and Tremolo for Jaguar/Jazzmaster

About This Item

Authentic surf-era technology! High quality steel pivoting bridge and spring-action tremolo, as originally designed for Jaguar® and Jazzmaster® solidbody guitars.

The bridge features the original pivoting design: the support posts fit into recessed body bushings, and rest on height-adjustable Allen screws. This lets the bridge pivot with tremolo movement for a more accurate return to pitch. Six individual threaded steel saddles allow intonation setup and minor string spacing variations. Saddle heights are Allen adjustable.

String spread: 2-3/16" (55.56mm)
Post spacing: 2-7/8" (73.02mm)
1.5mm Allen wrench adjustment (wrench not included)

Chrome, with body bushings included.

Recommended mounting holes for bushings:
11/32" (8.73mm) diameter
13/16" (20.64mm) deep

The tremolo is complete with Phillips spring tension adjustment screw and a fingertip lock button, an original feature not found in other reproductions. The chrome unit installs over a routed body cavity. The pivoting steel arm extends approximately 8-3/8" (212.73mm) with white plastic knob. Mounting screws included.

Jazzmaster Tremelo.

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this tremelo for a guitar I was given with the vital part missing. I already have a Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster so I know what the real thing should be like, and this Golden Age Tremelo was just perfect! Performs just as well as the Fender part but at a fraction of the cost. Really highly recommended.


Perfect fit

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought the tremolo assembly (without the bridge) to replace the non-locking one from a Squier VM Bass VI. It drops in place with no additional work required. Looks and works great!


Nice Vibrato!

(Customer's Reviews)

This was much more than I expected for the money. The chrome plating is nice and bright, and it fit right into a Jazzmaster routing hole. The operation was smooth although the lock was a little tight at first but after a few movements, it loosened up some. This is the best Offset trem for the money that I've found. I purposely wanted one that had no branding on it since I'm not trying to pass anything I build off as a Fender.


Good, with caveat

(Customer's Reviews)

Overall, these are well-made parts, and they're a good value for the price. I've had no problems with the bridge, but I did experience a minor issue with the tremolo tailpiece. Out of the box, the trem lock does not move backwards far enough for the lock to engage properly. I had to take apart the tremolo and lengthen the slot with a file.


Perfect update for the Squier Bass VI!

(Customer's Reviews)

I ordered this trem to add the locking feature to my newly acquired Squire Bass VI. I took a chance since there were no reviews for this item yet but I must say, PERFECT. It lined up with all existing mounting holes. String holes are nice and roomy, I was able to fit a .098 gauge bass string through each. The trem bar is meant for the guitar, so save the one that came with your bass. Also use original screws. (the included screws seem a tiny bit narrower) For the money, I cannot complain AT ALL.
