pivots gone... tremolo useless...


Recommended Posts

Hi U all... my Spirit has crudely bent bridge pivots. So hardly bent that the bridge plate is totally leaning towards front body wood. Actually I can't use the guitar without blocking the bridge and I'm going totally mad because I can't find spare parts unless I spend much much money. How should I solve this problem? I tried to send an email to Gibson (Steinberger) but no response by months.

If the base plate itself is already bent there aren't many options apart from getting a new tremolo. There is a JCustom R-Trem clone sold by HeadlessUSA. The much cheaper Chinese copy (Overlord of Music) won't make you happy, this tremolo is much weaker than the original (or the JCustom version).

Baseplate is not bent. Anyway I'm not gonna spend 250$ of bridge on a 300$ guitar. Come on...

Yes, that price has gone up recently, I also think it's too high. But the same tremolo can also be found on much more expensive guitars, so there's a market for it.

Anyway, if your base plate is not bent, this might be a solution for you: R-Trem steel posts upgrade.
