vintage trem

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

The trem is typical. It's the same trem arm as found on the older Framus Strato and others.
You can try Musikkeller.be as they usually have NOS parts for these trem unit's for sale.
