Item # 4027 Custom Stainless Steel Strat® Tremolo Arms
Or any guitar that uses American 10-32, Metric 5mm or Metric 6mm tremolo arm attachment threading.

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 Length.
  • 5¼" Intermediate Length.
  • 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 Attachment Threading option below you, will need to 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 since 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 time.

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 arms.

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 available here.


Custom Stainless Steel Stratocaster Tremolo Arms

Above you'll 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.

Attachment Threading: Metric 6mm tremolo arms DO NOT include a plastic tip.
Right or Left Handed:
Plastic Tip Color:
  You can only select the "NO PLASTIC TIP" option with the Metric 6mm Attachment Threading tremolo arms.
Price: $15.00 to $20.00
NOTE:  All tremolo arms (not just ours) must be screwed completely into the tremolo block all the way until it stops to a point where the last of the threaded portion goes at least 1/4" below the surface of the bridge plate.  If you fail to install your tremolo arm completely you will eventually experience failure of the tremolo arm.
