String Lock Insert for Floyd Rose

By Restoration from Fairfax, VA

I picked up an old guitar at a pawn shop the other day, and the nut who owned it before had taken all the inserts out and thrown them away. StewMac to the rescue! 30 years ago a friend lost one and we had to file down a replacement from a brass pin we pulled out of a master lock. I love the internet and how easy you can find things these days.

I bought these to replace some on my Washburn BT-6's Floyd Rose bridge. I have neither a Golden Age nor a Schaller FR Trem, so I bought the cheaper ones, the ones intended for the Golden Age FR Trem. They are slightly smaller and I have to be careful not to tip the guitar over, or they fall out, but that's only when changing strings. Otherwise they fit perfectly with all the other hardware surrounding them.

replaced worn inserts on a Ibanez that were slipping and letting string pop out, perfect fit and problem solved.

These are always in need.

It seems I get several people looking just for a lock insert. This is a must have for any parts box.

This is good for me.

Very good quality.

Better than PING TREM originals

(Customer's Reviews) Friday, June 22, 2012

These replacements are just better. They're smoother, perfectly flat and squared on the corners and sides and they have a better finish. (It would appear that the original inserts are cheesier even though the rest of the trem is very good)

At least one of my original inserts (made by PING for a FENDER FAT STRAT-more cost cutting on MIM guitars?) was "too fat at the bottom" and it dragged from the first string change, eventually causing it to bind and crack when misaligned under screw tension.

The replacements are in a word, perfect. They fit like a glove in the saddle slot and move smoothly with no excessive friction or side play.

My Floyd Rose string changes are much easier now, thanks to the close manufacturing tolerances on the replacement inserts.

Just essential!
