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.

It's the little things

The screws that adjust string heigh back out of their holes, causing all sorts of trouble.
The string spacing (from middle of the low-E to the middle of the high-E) is more like 57.5
The intonation adjustment screws are directly under the stings, making it a pain to adjust while strings are on there (and what other way would you want to adjust the intonation?).
The tailpiece's tremolo lock slot is too short. Had to file it several mm before it engaged properly.
The tremolo arm falls out very easily.

All of this combined has led me to regret this purchase.

Squire Jaguar Tremolo Upgrade

By

Verified Buyer


I bought my Squire Jaguar used. It needed a setup really bad. It did not have a locking Tremolo or a Tremolo lever, it must have got lost. I looked at Stewart Mac's version, the price was right and it had everything to bring my Jaguar more like the Fender model. When I received it, the lock didn't seem to look as if it engage, but you have to consider the strings put pressure on the tail to bring it forward. It was O.K. and an improvement over stock Tremolo. The new Tremolo has the outward strings so they are not directly over the screws, which used to break the first string by it's rubbing on that screw. When I showed it to my music instructor she said "it is beautiful". Very happy with this new locking Tremolo, looks great, works great you need one if don't have one.

Great product and price

Did some mods to jazzmaster kit so had to mod a drilled hole for Gibson style bridge but once done this worked nicely. Haven’t strung guitar yet but am very satisfied with quality.

Same problem as stock bridge

By

Verified Buyer


Bought the bridge to replace the stock one where the height screws keep falling out. This is a common problem with the JM bridge. This one will have the same problem so I have to return it. No friction in the threads so they back out. Others have used loctite but I don't want to do that. Maybe it's only a problem on the Blacktop model? The strings are almost flat over the bridge so very little string pressure to keep screws tight. Otherwise looks well made.

Super happy

By

Verified Buyer


I got this for a new Squier Jaguar. I specifically chose this tremolo as the Squier was missing the fingertip lock button. I had read some other reports that it didn't engage properly, but certainly in my case it worked great once under string pressure.

I am very happy with how it's working.

Jazzmaster Tremelo.

By

Verified Buyer


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.
