Wilkinson/Gotoh VSVG Vintage Tremolo

About This Item

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.

As usual, great service of quality products from StewMac. I've been using the service for many years on occasion and I've never been disappointed. Thanks for the Tech Tips too, balanced the trem very easily. Thanks as always.

excellent upgrade for my Squire

By

My stock 6-screw tremolo was impossible to keep in tune, so I got the Wilkinson and could not be happier. It is noticeably heavier with the steel block, and gives me some good sustain. The stainless saddles are beautiful and also feel good on your hand with the rounded shape. The push in adjustable arm is also very nice. It is so easy to just pull it out and push it in, and I have it adjusted to stay in place. Together with locking tuners and alnico pickups, my Squire feels and sounds like my American deluxe Strat. Lastly, I have the bridge adjusted to dive deep and come up a half-step, and it always returns back to tune.

Very good choice

Finding the right bridge with the correct string spacing for Stratocasters is a frustrating experience. This worked out great. My only gripe with StewMac is that they charge 10 bucks for shipping whether you order some screws or pickups.. oh well

Alternative replacement for the crap Fender bridge.

By

Verified Buyer


This is a review since I bought it in 2007. The tremolo arm is a bit too low, once you slot it in it will glide in and touch the volume button. I have to bend it higher but it will bend back after long time use.
You must make sure that you don't lose the separate intonation screw.
My string always breaks on the saddle part. I use D'addario stainless steel strings.
I've moved on to another bridge now in 2019.

I built a Warmth Strat with a 24.75 inch (Gibson) conversion neck. This results in a 12th fret that sits a TINY bit closer to the body. This requires a bridge whose saddle have a bit more rearward travel (toward the strap knob) than a regular Strat bridge can reasonably handle. The Wilkinsin VSVG is perfect in that, its saddle are capable of this.

Thanks,
Kurt Amschler

Best Bridge Ever

By

Verified Buyer


Note: This made to drop-in Fender guitars.

I put this in my Squier Bullet and Affinity series as a replacement bridge. I had to do some routing and chiseling on both. But more on my Bullet due to the thin body.
Nothing too technical for careful planning, and a straight line chisel.
I had to dig out the bridge cavity on the top about 1/2" and the bottom cavity about 7/8" to give the bridge full motion.
The screw hole alignment didn't match exactly on either, but it was close enough to where I could fill the "off" holes with wood glue and redrill it, which was only one hole per guitar.
Will have to scratch up spring claw to solder a ground to it.
Adjustment screw for the arm is reachable if you "dive" the arm.

TLDR;
Best bridge I've ever owned. It's sturdy and holds tuning really well. Big block sounds much better than the stock block.

Not really a vintage

By

Verified Buyer


The item is excellent and this is my second buy. The screw are hex that it looks modern. The dimension fits the the vintage body cavity. It has a bigger tremolo block that it has to be routed a little at the rear to maximize the full potential of the tremolo.
