About This Item

A unique, high quality tremolo with saddles that lock to a hardened steel baseplate for better tuning stability, string energy transfer and sustain.

Each saddle is height-adjustable. Threaded studs and bushings, springs, spring claw, allen wrenches and adjustable-tension arm are included.

This tremolo fits American Standard Strat® and Strat Plus guitars without modifications. See our tremolo routing template (#1110 For Strat) for other installations. 2-1/8" (53.97mm) string spread, 2-3/16" (55.56mm) center-to-center stud spacing. Use a 10mm drill bit to install the bushings.

A vast improvement

(Customer's Reviews)

I'm not a luthier, so I got my guy to fit this for me, and I'm still 'running it in' so to speak.. But happy so far. I expect a few weeks of fettling until I settle on how I like it set up. There's a confusing amount of 'how to' videos out there, but trial and error is OK by me. For instance, I tried it 'locked down' briefly, so that when I bent a g-string for example, the b wouldn't go flat as the overall tension changed.. But didn't like the knocking sound as the block contacted the recess hole when the trem settled back. The full floating option also means a string break is rather more drastic.. But full floating feels more natural to me anyway. The trem looks very clean and modern. The 6 screw version looked like a big, ugly metal players device, in comparison. Even though my Strat is '73 vintage, I would rather bore 2 large holes for the pivot posts in it than put the 6 screw version on! Great service, great unit. No complaints!


My Favorite Vibrato Bridge

(Customer's Reviews)

Excellent quality bridge. I upgraded mine with a solid brass block, but even with the stock block it sounds very nice. Tuning stability is excellent (I use Schaller locking tuners) and the engineering is simple and effective.
