Mate, PM Sgt Vimes and he'll set you right with the locking clamps. The string hooks are unavailable by and large, but try these solutions...

The fine tuners are also peculiar to Westone and once again, by and large, unavailable unless you get lucky on eBay or Gumtree. 4mm hex head bolts will see you right until you get the right sort!

String hooks for the tremelo?

The wang bar is available fronm the likes of Stewmac under "bars, black, imported", or similar.
