Hello you roughneck!! Welcome to you. Bad news first... nobody makes them for replacement.

Keeping an eye peeled to ebay is about your best bet unless someone here has a spare one to sell. I just received a backup today from an ebay auction for $60 including the whammy bar. It will be a spare in the event I need it someday.

I never have seen one alone for sale on Craigslist yet, but often you can find a project Westone or even complete gigging axe with them for a very reasonable amount, as in less than $75.00

Good luck in your hunt.

String claw? that's a Bendmaster FT; the Deluxe strings through the sustain block?? Like Ice I've got about three Deluxes as spares, complete with string locks but the FT does not show up very often. One of the blokes in here had some string claws made by a gunsmith, but the price was quite high....

I second Westbones post regarding the Bendmaster FT.

I used the Kahler string claw on my low E string on the Bendmaster FT. You will have to sand it down a bit as the Kahler part is a little too wide. It brought my Bendmaster back from the dead. It is now flawless and the Kahler claw holds the whams as well as George Michael.

Needless to say, this solution is a thousand times easier than replacing this top quality bridge.

You'll have to follow the link and contact the poster. Or do a google.

Or buy the string claw from www.banzaimusic.de for around 2 euros. I am trying to find the direct link but am very busy atm...

Ah here is the direct link: http://www.banzaimusic.com/Kahler-9407-X.html

Again, you will have to sand down the sides a little bit (medium grit sandpaper works just fine).
