Product Details

Improved Strat tuning stability, sustain and reliability!

The baseplate holes are elongated so the screws won't bind, for smooth, accurate pitch return. For tuning stability, the string mounting holes are staggered in the steel block for more consistent string angle over the adjustable locking bent-steel saddles.

2-1/8" string spread.

Includes:
Springs, spring claw, arm with white plastic knob (#3534-B black tremolo has black plastic knob), mounting screws, saddle adjustment screw and Allen wrenches.

It's way better than those over hyped up trem units! Easy to install & intonate. Handsome looking piece of trem. Nice tones, improve tuning stability offered. Pair it with locking tuners and we are locked in tight and ready for the road...

Make sure the spacing fits your guitar body before you purchase this tremolo. This is the most solid vintage style tremolo I have ever come across and have installed it on over a dozen custom quality strats with sperzels. Yes, intonating can be cumbersome, however once dialed in, you can't get a better end to end combo IMO.

This is a great tremolo unit but it could be better. Unfortunately the screw holes did not line up on an Asian import Strat like I had thought so I had to plug existing holes and re-drill new ones. My only other issue is the method to intonate could have been executed better.

not quite there

First of all, this is a great trem, well built and with some very clever and useful designs and a big improvement over my original trem. BUT, it didn't quite fit my japanese 90's strat, so I had to use only four of the long screws to fasten it to the body, the outer two holes are partially covered by the bridge itself, something that can't be fixed without major surgery on either part. For me, four screws are more than ok, but some people may not see it my way.

Good, but be aware...

...that the photos of the item are a bit misleading.

I was concerned about the string spacing as the published spec indicated a different spacing to the vintage standard spacing. I needn't have worried. Five of the slots are oval so there's a fair amount of leeway with one of the hole being round to provide a solid fixing.

That said, there's more forward/back movement on this unit than you get with a genuine Fender bridge, but as soon as it's up to string tension, it's not an issue.

The supplied intonation adjustment screw seems a bit superfluous. It's just as easy to loosen the locking nut and push it backwards and forwards by hand pressure. The screw only pushes the saddle anyway so backwards adjustment has to be done by hand.

In other respects, the locking arrangement is good and very stable once everything is screwed down tight.

So what's misleading about the photos? I don't know about you, but to me they look like there going to be solid metal saddles (like the Hipshot ones). They're not. In fact, they are bent metal sheet rather like the original Fender ones only extending further back to incorporate the locking mechanism.

In itself, this isn't a problem as the unit is very stable and sustain is fine. I do think they should include a side-elevation shot though just to make this clear.

Despite this one concern, I would recommend this bridge as a good alternative if you don't mind your Strat being non-vintage correct.
