  1. Hi guys! I've got a Fender mustang competition from 1972.? When I bought the guitar there was no tremolo arm. I bought a new one online, which fits on a '65, but it doesn't fit.... (https://www.thomann.de/nl/fender_mustang_tremarm.htm) I measured the parts: the tremolo arm is close to Ø5mm (around Ø4,95mm), the bridge hole is around Ø4,7mm. Is the hole size correct, or should it be Ø5mm? Or do I need a thinner arm? Hope someone can help me. Greetings, Willem
  2. 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 a
  3. I am in the process of putting a 70s Mustang together and am wondering if a new fender tremolo will fit, the part number is 0035566000. My only options if it does not fit is warmoth or eBay.
  4. I bought a new Sqiuer VM Jazzmaster, and found buzzing and crackling after using the tremolo. I sent it back to the shop. I received the guitar back yesterday, but the fault was not fixed. I checked the bridge to jack ground with a multi-meter and it was open circuit. I made a diagnostic fix by connecting a wire from the jack nut to one of the tremolo screws. (see attached) The static noise has gone completely. I found a diagram on the web showing a ground wire to the bridge posts.(attached) However, I am sure the ground wire is connected to the bridge post
  5. I couldnt find a decent video or forum post anywhere so i decided to post this and figure it out as i went along. you may ask why do this mod? increased sustain was what i was after and i was shocked to find it greatly increased after this mod. the hardest thing about this whole mod is removing the tremolo springs... i used a flat head screw driver and needle nose pliers for that. we will talk about washer sizes later in the post. things you will need : new strings, possibly needle nose pliers, 4 metal washers, philips head screw driver (5/32), flat head screw driver(any size)
  6. I've had a 65 reissue for some years now and have never been able to get the damn whammy bar out of the tremolo. I've unscrewed the side screw all the way out and yanked on the bar on several different occasions but have never seemed to make any progress. Does any one else have any experience with this?
