Tremalo

By

Verified Buyer


The big block tremalo system stays in tune well and adds more sustain! Had to router out the tremalo cavity for it to pivot fully but that was rather easy to do with a dremal rotary tool. I was not sure that I liked the tremalo arm angle at first as I was not used to it but found that I like it better than the standard Fender tremalo arm angle! Rock On!

Alternative Parts for the everyday Strat

I think when you build up a Strat up from parts, you could try and use other company's items. Gotoh is a very good brand that I use. I decided to try their drop-in tremolo, and I'm grad I did. The tremolo fit perfectly, looks great, and functions properly. If you're thinking about your budget, this unit comes complete and is a good deal. I can recommend this tremolo without hesitation.

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

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.
