Trem arm springs .. Would be good But..

I have had my strats for decades, and I like to use the trem bar, BUT, on the Made In Mexico Strats, the springs slide right through the hole down into the body of the guitar, rendering the spring useless. On the MIA American strats, they catch and hold where you can turn the bar round and round until the spring starts working. In the Made in Mex Strats, there is no chance for the spring to work because there is no chance for the spring to do its stuff. I have read about this and some users suggest using a piece of plumber's Teflon tape in advance of placing the spring in the guitar trem hole, but that doesn't work either, if there is no place for the spring to be supported. the trem bar spring and the tape both slide through if there is no support point. Sounds like this needs a manufacturer retro fix of some kind.

Tremolo Arm Springs

By Ed

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Fender Tremolo Arm Tension Springs (12):

Somewhat stiff, can be difficult to break in. Otherwise though, a genuine Fender replacement part is a genuine Fender replacement part. They do their job perfectly and there are twelve of them. They also work well in other, non Fender guitars

Great replacement springs !

By Carlton Buehrer

from Longboat Key, FL.

Comments about Fender Tremolo Arm Tension Springs (12):

Snugs up the trem as well as one might expect from any spring. If you keep your bar in on a, more or less, permanent basis you may want to try tape, etc., but these springs work as intended. Personally, I rarely use the trem-bar (I keep the hole taped) preferring instead to use the heel of my hand or my finger tips. Still, I always manage to lose the originals and just like to keep 'em around. If your original spring worked well enough for you, these certainly will, too.

    Comments about Fender Tremolo Arm Tension Springs (12):

    The spring is necessary and works very well. I use these in all my original American Strats. They do however have a tendency to fall out and get lost. In fact most players don't even know that they exist. I use a round magnetic cover over the trem hole when the arm is removed so that the spring is stored safely. I sell these kits at many popular on-line sites. :)

          Comments about Fender Tremolo Arm Tension Springs (12):

          Bought an American Standard in a pawn shop about 20 years ago and was always frustrated by the tremolo bar being either too loose or screwed all the way down making the arm difficult to keep out the way when not in use. Just recently saw a Youtube video where the tech explained that there is supposed to be one of these in there. Installed it and problem solved.

              Just bought it today from the Albuquerque guitar center. Was confused if it would work on my Fender Special Edition Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar. Took the chance and it works. Nice that the tremolo bar doesn't move and make noise anymore.

                If anybody needs the tremolo arm on their Strat style guitar be stiff and not wiggling and not moving around when tremolo arm is not used and not have this spring, than they should get it. The tremolo arm is stiff staying exactly where left and doesn't wiggle when trying to create the tremolo effect. Works on Peavey Predator Powerbend tremolo bridge.

                This should have been included by Fender when I bought the guitar, but was not. Guitar Center provided it free of charge and shipped it to me immediately rather than have me wait for two (2) months for Fender to ship one special. Great job Guitar Center !!!
