Well I fear sounding silly here but I must ask, is this just some general apparatus that is adapted to be a collar or is it in fact the genuine part? A description for one of these to narrow my search would help.

Does the trem arm need to be lathed to have a 9mmX1 thread?

That is the genuine item. No machining is required.
Yours is the B/master deluxe, yes?

If you read the article on the  other type it's for an FT type trem.


I'd be getting a load of flatting paper(don't ask me what grade?.. Laughing ) as you've a lot of flatting to do..... Twisted Evil

OK. Gees ... expensive. However the base of the arm still needs to be threaded.

Well I did say that I've never had experience with FR type trems Embarassed

So, your original Pantera X300 did come with chrome tremolo arm and chrome collar?

Don't mind trying to help but don't like repeating myself if you can't be bothered to read posts.

I understand, and make no mistake I am reading a lot. My intention with the chrome question was to ask whether each line of Westone guitar had its inconsistencies with its hardware finishes. A picture on a Pantera front cover brochure appears to show brushed steel trem arm with black collar on a BD trem. Anyway, it is minor, I've got the idea and will move on.

My search for paint codes has led me to an Electra forum site and somebody (X189) says he/she used Duplicolour Universal flat black NG SF 104 for touch ups on his/her Electra, judging that it is a close match to his/her Electra. Hopefully this will be it. 

PS: The fellow that sold me the guitar sent me an extra pickup supposedly a UBC bridge humbucker from a Spectrum S or 5 (cant make out the character). Has thin red, white, and thick grey wire. On the back it has a gold sticker that says B 6.23 k ohms.

My serial number suggests it is made in '86.

The picture on the front cover is not even your model Pantera.

Good luck with your impending project.

Standard Pro X300 but with the BD in the top corner, probably threw me. 

Thank you, and thanks to Guitarsaurus, Barry and Corsair for those references.
