These new design pop-in tremolo arms
are specifically manufactured for the 2017 American
Professional Strat® that accepts a pop-in tremolo arm.
These are NOT a screw-in tremolo arm and will ONLY fit
the 2017 American Processional Strat®.
We custom manufacture each of these tremolo
arms by hand out of Precision Centerless Ground 303 Stainless
Steel for a fine finish, strength and durability.
- 4¼" Gilmour Style
- 6" Standard Length.
The tremolo block end of the tremolo
arm or the end that goes down into the bridge is
machined to a point and has the retaining groove
machined just above it. Each tremolo arm accepts a standard
screw-on plastic tip which is
available in six different colors; black,
cream, vintage cream, mint green, parchment or white.
Our tremolo arms are specifically
designed around a free-free floating bridge setup.
With the two pin pivot tremolo system of the American
Professional Strat the front edge of your bridges top
plate should be approximately 0.030" up from the painted
wooden surface of the body, this is about the thickness
of credit card, your bridge should only pivot on the two
pins, not on the body like a vintage Strat bridge. The back edge of the bridge should be up off the
surface of the body by 1/8". With this setup the plastic tip
end of these tremolo arms will be
placed approximately 2" to 2-1/4" above the pickguard
surface when the arm is in the playing position. Your
actual tremolo arm tip-to-pickguard surface distance may
vary slightly depending on your particular bridge setup. We DO
NOT recommend your bridge to be setup as flush with the
body, your tremolo arms tip-to-pickguard surface
distance would then be greater.
Requests for left handed tremolo arms
will incur extra turn-around time.
These tremolo arms are being
manufactured in very limited quantities due to
the extended length of time it takes to manufacture each tremolo
