Black Strat Style Super Short 4-1/4" Tremolo Arm:
Custom Length Stainless Steel Tremolo Arms For Fender Stratocaster Style Guitars
Will fit American Standard & Vintage Strat's, Mexican Strat's, Japanese Strat's & Squier Strat's or any guitar that uses 10-32,5mm or 6mm attachment threading.
The featured tremolo arm is the 4¼" DG style length.
Custom manufactured to the same length specifications as DG's Black Strat's shortened 4¼" tremolo arm.
Pictured above is a representation of the featured 4¼" shortened tremolo arm.
The upper arm shown above is how the 10-32 American Strat, 5mm Mexican Strat, 5mm Japanese Strat and 5mm Squire Strat arms are manufactured. The lower arm is how the larger 6mm Squier Strat arm is manufactured without a plastic tip. The 6mm arm is much thicker and feels very nice and smooth with the rounded tip end instead of the traditional plastic tip.
Our tremolo arms are custom manufactured for the Fender Stratocaster guitar from Precision Ground 303 Stainless Steel.The Precision Ground finish provides a very smooth and clean appearance and the 303 grade stainless steel offers strength, durability and excellent machinability to produce clean and accurate threading.Each of these tremolo arms offered here are threaded at the attachment end. Custom manufactured in Stockton, California USA.
Important points of reference for selecting the correct tremolo arm style and length:
- The standard Fender Strat tremolo arm is 6" in length.
- The standard Squier Strat tremolo arm is 7" in length.
- David Gilmour's tremolo arm is published in Phil Taylor's book "The Black Strat" as custom shortened to 4¼" in length.
- These tremolo arms WILL NOT fit the American Deluxe Strat guitars, they use a pop-in tremolo arm.
STYLE 1: These tremolo arms will fit the American Standard Strat with the 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge or any vintage American Strat bridge that uses a 10-32 threaded tremolo arm. Select your plastic tip color below. This is the Default tremolo arm you will receive if you do not specify otherwise.
- STYLE 2: These tremolo arms will fit the Mexican, Japanese, and the Squire Strat's that use the 5mm metric threaded tremolo arm (M5 x .8). Squier describes their 5mm tremolo arm as the "Smaller Thread" version.Select your plastic tip color below. Make sure you mention that you want a 5mm tremolo arm at the time of checkout.
STYLE 3: These tremolo arms will fit the Squier Strat with the larger 6mm threaded tremolo arm.Squier describes this larger tremolo arm as having "Large Threads" which is 6mm metric threading (M6 x 1.0).These 6mm arms will NOT have a plastic tip due to the larger diameter of the arm does not allow the traditional plastic tips to fit.Instead the tremolo arm will have a rounded and polished arm tip just like the American Deluxe Strat pop-in arms. A nice modern alternative approach to the tremolo arm style. Make sure you mention that you want a 6mm Squier tremolo arm at the time of checkout.
