Yamaha SA-30 and SA-15 Whammy Bar

Unread post by TheSupposedStringMeister » Fri Jun 07, 2019 8:35 am

Recently bought an SA-30 in distress. It also was missing the whammy bar. So I took the original whammy bar of another SA30 I have and copied its design. Then a stainless steel version was made and I polished it yesterday and then bend it slightly to match the original. Here is a photo of the top and bottom of it.

I can make more of these and wonder what a reasonable price would be. What do you guys think?

I will post another photo of it once it is fitted to the guitar. I think it will also fit an SA15.

Looks good. I could use a couple myself. As to price you are making them so you should set a price that compensates you for your time and the materials plus a bit on top of that. How much is your time worth to you that is the question. If you figure it out let me know.
