Custom Manufactured Stainless Steel Strat® Tremolo Arms

Custom designed and manufactured stainless steel tremolo arms for the genuine Fender Strat® tremolo bridge that accepts a screw-in tremolo arm.

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.  Read this article for a full understanding of our tremolo arm designs.

Available In Three Lengths

  • 4¼" Gilmour Length.
  • 5¼" Intermediate Length.
  • 6" Standard Length.

Available In Two Attachment Threading's

  • 10-32 - American Strat® that accepts a 10-32 threaded screw-in tremolo arm.
  • Metric 5mm - Import Strat's; Mexican and Japanese Strat's® that accept the M5 x 0.8 threaded screw-in tremolo arm.

If you have a genuine Fender tremolo bridge and are unsure as to the correct attachment threading in your bridge read our article on how to determine your tremolo arm attachment threading before ordering. These tremolo arms are not designed for Squier's or any aftermarket or non-Fender tremolo bridges.

The tip end of the tremolo arm is threaded to accept a standard plastic tip which is available in six different colors; black, cream, vintage cream, mint green, parchment or white.

In comparison to some vintage style tremolo arms you may find that our tremolo arms may be approximately 1/4" longer on the straight portion that screws down into the bridge. This is more in line with the characteristics of modern production tremolo bridge assemblies and their associated tremolo arms.

All of our tremolo arms are designed around a free-floating bridge setup to create their proper tip-to-pickguard distance. To effectively use any of our shortened tremolo arms your bridge must be setup as free-floating.

If you have one of those half-thickness tremolo blocks on your import bridge then our custom tremolo arms won't have the proper bend angle for that style of bridge, those bridges accept the tremolo arm into the block at a 10 degree different angle than the typical Strat tremolo bridge.  You can confirm this by the removal of the back plate on your Strat and looking at the bottom of your tremolo block where the tremolo tension springs clip on, the tremolo block will only be 1/4" thick and that is not what you want to see, so don't purchase one of these tremolo arms for that bridge.

Requests for left handed tremolo arms may incur a few extra days turn-around time.

Vintage Cream most closely approximates Fender's Aged White, it's not an exact match, but it's the closest.

Price: $18.00
IMPORTANT:  All tremolo arms 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 top plate.  If you do not install your tremolo arm correctly you will eventually experience failure of the tremolo arm.
