Hi everyone. I'm having real problems with the trem on my Japanese jaguar.
It started with a really ugly creaking sound which, after a bit of googling, seemed to be due to the spring being too loose or something. So, I tightened the screw below the hold button and thought I'd fixed it.
Then I noticed a clacking sound because the moving part was hitting against the plate. So I loosened the screw.
Now I'm moving between the two, and tightening or loosening leads to each of the problems reappearing. It is driving me MAD.
Also, the hold switch is very loose and doesn't make any difference whether its forward or back.
All in all, it's a complete nuisance and makes the thing all but unplayable. Do I have to remove the whole trem? If so, what am I looking for and how can I fix it?
Any suggestions very gratefully received.
