SA50 Tremolo Arm

Unread post by Preloved Guitars »

Hi folks, I have acquired a 1967 SA50 missing its tremolo arm, can anyone suggest where I would look for a replacement? I have scoured Google, but came up with nothing.

Thanks,
Brian

Sean (The SupposedStringMeister ) will know you may be best sending him a private message. He's in New Zealand so there will be time differences
There may be something on his web site https://superaxe.vanpolanenpetel.net/Th ... er/?p=1302

Thanks Bill, I do make SA-30 arms for both the early and the later model but haven't really tried to do something for the SA50 arm. I have been meaning to put a post up showing the SA30 vibrato arms I have made. They are looking good, working well and the first one went on one of my SA30s. Got a few more and need to put them on Reverb...

The SA 50 uses the same tremolo parts from a SG 3 and 5 right? That might help if you search for those parts online especially on Yahoo Auctions.

I have just acquired my SA50, and would like to know what tightness or looseness the tension screw can be.. I'm unsure of loosening it too much, but it seems very stiff to play.
By the way Brian (Preloved guitars) is near me, but I've never met him.
