Post by ludobag1 » Sun Sep 12, 2021 5:07 am

hi since long time i have this trem and miss the trem arm
after some searching it seems to be a framus strato or strato deluxe trem ,but there is a cut in the moving part where the arm normally will be ? all example i saw hadn't this cut (maybe it is for another arm than the strato ,stratodeluxe ,or it have be made by a previous owner who have lost the arm and made a bigsby style arm ?)

i made a search on hoyer guitar that i don' t know well,on framus there is a small difference ,it have a double thread part to feed the arm with a collet and a nut ,the arm is unthreaded , on mine the thread is is for a screw(that i have ) for the special arm (look like a chet bigsby arm in fact )

then i know the arm for ,but don't know witch guitar it came from, mine is then unmolested just need the arm to be usable
