Custom designed and manufactured
stainless steel tremolo arms for Strat.
We custom manufacture each of our tremolo
arms by hand out of Precision Centerless Ground 303 Stainless
Steel for a fine finish, strength and durability.
Available In Three Lengths:
- 4¼" Gilmour Style
- 6" Standard Length.
Manufactured With Three
Different Attachment Threading's (10-32, 5mm or 6mm):
10-32 - Any American Vintage or
Vintage Re-Issue Strat® and American Standard Strat® w/2
Point Pivot Tremolo Bridge.
Metric 5mm - Mexican Strat's,
Japanese Strat's and Some Squier Strat's. Squier
calls this a "Smaller Thread". Some of the vintage re-issue
Mexican Strat's like the "Classic '50s, '60s & '70s
Strat's use the 10-32 threaded tremolo arm,
so be sure to verify what your tremolo arm threading is before ordering.
- Metric 6mm - Some Squier Strat's. Squier calls
this a "Large Thread".
Our tremolo arms are threaded with UNF 10-32, Metric
5mm or Metric 6mm threads
for the mounting attachment in the tremolo block. The tip
end of the tremolo arm is threaded to accept a standard
plastic tip with the exception of the 6mm Squier tremolo arm,
see photograph on the right.
Our metric 6mm
Squier Strat® tremolo arms are manufactured
similar to the American Deluxe Strat® tremolo
arms where they do not have a plastic tip, the tip end
is simply rounded and polished smooth, so if you select
the 6mm tremolo arm in the
option below you, will
select the "No Plastic Tip" in the
Plastic Tip Color
option. If you erroneously select a tip
color for a 6mm tremolo arm you will still NOT receive one
they are not applicable for the 6mm design. You cannot
select this "No Plastic Tip" option for any of the other
Attachment Threading tremolo arms except for the Metric
6mm. All of the
6mm tremolo arms are custom manufactured on an "as
ordered" basis so there will be a couple day extra turn-around
As depicted to the right, we offer six different colored plastic
tips to choose from.
The choices are black,
cream, vintage cream, mint green, parchment or white.
You can only select the "No
Plastic Tip" for the Tip Color option for the 6mm
attachment threading for the Squier Strat's. All
of these tremolo arms are regular production, if you want
something special, send us an email, we can custom
manufacture you a tremolo arm to your design. Pricing
starts at $27.00 and goes up from there depending on
design and any machining that may be required.
In comparison to some vintage style
tremolo arms you may find that our tremolo arms may be
approximately 1/4" longer on the portion that screws
into the bridge. This is not a problem, just more in
line with the characteristics of modern production
tremolo bridge assemblies and their associated tremolo
These "screw-in" tremolo arms will NOT fit a
guitar that utilizes a push-in tremolo arm
such as the Deluxe Strat®. If you are looking for the
push-in tremolo arms they are
notice the Squier 6mm tremolo arms WILL NOT have a
plastic tip, they are manufactured as depicted above
with the rounded and polished tip end.
Plastic tip color selections are only
applicable to the 10-32 and metric 5mm tremolo arms. The
metric 6mm tremolo arms do not use a plastic tip.
