Custom Manufactured Stainless Steel American Deluxe, Elite and Ultra Strat® Pop-In Tremolo Arms

Custom designed and manufactured stainless steel tremolo arms for ONLY the Fender® American Deluxe, Elite and Ultra Strat® that accepts the pop-in tremolo arm. 

We custom fabricate each of these tremolo arms by hand from precision centerless ground 303 stainless steel.

Available In Two Lengths

  • 4" - Gilmour Length
  • 5-½" - Standard Length

This tremolo arm design does not have the traditional plastic tip, instead the tip end of the bar is rounded and the entire tremolo arm is polished to a high shine finish. We do not offer a version of this tremolo arm that has a plastic tip.

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 tremolo arms your bridge must be setup as free-floating with the back underside edge of the bridge plate up off the body by 1/8".

These tremolo arms will not fit the American Professional Strat®, will not fit the 83-84 Elite Strat with the Freeflyte bridge and will not fit any Strat® that accepts a screw-in tremolo arm.

IMPORTANT TREMOLO ARM TENSION ADJUSTMENT NOTE: There are two set screws on the back side of the American Deluxe, Elite and Ultra Strat® tremolo block, they dictate the insertion and rotational friction of the tremolo arm. These set screws use a 3/32" hex wrench, one is accessible just under the top plate on the back side of the bridge the other requires removal of the bridge from the guitar.  Both of these set screws pinch the tremolo arm plastic bushing for a tighter tremolo arm fit. The upper set screw is primarily used to dictate the tremolo arm rotational friction, the lower set screw is primarily used to dictate how firm or loose the tremolo arm engages the retaining clip.

Price: $34.00 Each

These tremolo arms are fabricated for the American Deluxe, Elite and Ultra Strat® in small production run quantities due to the extended time it takes to create each tremolo arm. Give us up to 14 days to complete your tremolo arm.
