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.

Locking slot incorrectly machined

By

Verified Buyer


I was hoping that the older reviews of this were innacurate, but I can report that, yes, in fact the lock isn't functional. You could file away some material to make it work (lengthen the slot towards the tail), but since it's chrome it would probably start flaking.

It's a good trem if you want the "look" of the lock; but unless you're willing to destroy your brand new tremolo it's not worth the purchase.

Tremolo requires tweaking to function reliably

By

Verified Buyer


When I first unpacked this it looked like a good solid unit. However I discovered ( as have other reviewers) that the notch for the locking button is too small, and needed to be enlarged for the lock to function.
Also, the collet/handle arrangement is too loose and lacks any positive engagement mechanism. The collet should be made of better spring steel. On my 67 Jaguar, the handle has a groove that snaps into the collet. This does not, and the handle can fall out.

Make sure you know what you need!

I was looking to replace my TOM bridge on my jazzmaster and hoped this would give me the ability to enjoy the vibrato arm with added stability.

The quality of the part is great, as expected, although I do hear a lot of spring buzz. I suspect that might be because the TOM posts are bigger than these posts and I have too much space in there not in direct contact with the body. I may have to dowel and redrill, which I was hoping to avoid.

After a bit of research it seems that to properly intonate the low E, you have to cut the screw so it doesn’t hit the string in the pickup side. Easy dremel, but obviously I’ve voided my warranty and return ability.

In the end, this review can serve as a buyer do you homework. Be ready to dowel and redrill in some cases. Be ready to cut the screw to intonate the low E.

StewMac makes great stuff, so if you’re good with this things, you should be a happy camper.

Frankly disappointing

By

Verified Buyer


For a machined part costing 50 bucks, I had hoped I wouldn't need to personally alter this trem unit in order for it to function fully and normally. Sadly this is not the case. The slot for the locking mechanism will have to be filed longer in order for the lock to engage. This is something I would have expected from an ultra-cheap Chinese imported unit, but not from StewMac. If you want a fully functional trem unit out of the box, probably better to just buy a Fender branded one until they mitigate the design issues on this one.

Nice!  Trem lock works fine

By

Verified Buyer


Other reviews here state the trem lock does not work. That is not the case, it works fine. The tremolo must be under string tension. In any event, it look great, seems well made and fits well.

great trem

Works just as good as the stock fender trem on my blacktop jazzmaster with the addition on the locking button. Lifesaver while playing live.

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.
