  • Help Installing G&L Tremolo Arm

    I feel really stupid asking this, but I can't figure this out. I just got my first tremolo equipped guitar, a G&L Legacy and I can't figure out how to get the damn arm for the tremolo on. It slides into the hole but there has to be a way to lock it down so it doesn't rotate as your playing.



    Anyone know what to do?

    there is a small allen key that screws into the base of the bridge that puts pressure on the arm to hold it in place.

      Is the wrench for it supposed to come with the guitar? I found 3 wrenches in the case but two of them are much too big, and there is an itty bitty one that feels too small when you put it in that hole.

        One of those should do it. Press down on the trem a little and you should clearly see the nylon insert "allen screw" they use to tighten the bar.

          I recently bought a second F-100 (81?) and it needs a tremolo bar. Any one know where to find an original style one?

            You can order a replacement arm from G&L, though for that particular guitar you'll need to replce the socket as well (again, available on their site)
