Missing trem arm

Post by jim68000 on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:42 pm

I have a Thunder 1T which is a marvellous thing. It came without its trem arm, however. What kind of trem fits? It's clearly not a skinny strat style, as that just falls out. What am I looking for?

Depending on the trem involved it will be either a 5 or 6 mm threaded end. Do you have the odd bolts about in those sizes to try?

AllParts, StewMac and even fleabag will carry them as stock items if you cannot get one at your local instrument store.

It's probably the 6mm as the Strat trem is 5mm, which is usual for Japanese strats. I'll see if I've got an M6 in my nuts and bolts tin. Thanks!

You are probably correct on it being a 6'er but many of the later MIK Westones did have the smaller 5mm end, usually in the various Floyd Patents copies.

Post some pics when you can. Welcome to the Nutz Hut, BTW. Smile
