Custom designed and manufactured stainless
steel tremolo arms for the American Deluxe Fender® Strat®
and the new American Elite Strat® that uses the
tremolo arm. We custom manufacture /
machine each of our tremolo arms by hand out of
Precision Centerless Ground 303 Stainless Steel
for a fine finish, strength and durability
the following lengths:
Gilmour style short
arm does not have the traditional plastic tip,
instead the tip end of the bar is rounded as
depicted in the photograph to the right. Each
tremolo arm is then entirely polished to a finish very similar to chrome.
Left handed tremolo arms may
have a couple day lead time from order placement
until your tremolo arm will ship, we manufacture
these deluxe Strat left handed tremolo arms on
an "as ordered" basis.
To effectively use any of our
shortened tremolo arms, your bridge should be
setup as free-floating for ease of use and
proper tip-to-pickguard distance.
These tremolo arms will NOT
fit the new American Professional Strat®.
The purchase of one of our
pop-in tremolo arms may require you to re-adjust
the two tremolo arm tensioning set screws on the
back side of your tremolo block. These two set
screws dictate the insertion and rotational
friction. 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.
The upper set screw primarily dictates the
rotational friction, the lower set screw
primarily dictates how firm or loose the arm
engages the retaining clip.
