I'm looking for a bridge like this:



I have the bridge, I am missing the spring and whammy bar though. So mine looks like this (although not my guitar):


Any ideas?

Hi Paul,

I suppose it depends how "DIY" you want to go, and also your budget?

For a spring maybe you could look at repurposing one from a welding hammer (or elsewhere) like this:

For the trem arm maybe play around with making a plywood template to get the shape you want and then have someone with some metal work experience fabricate one for you?

What guitar is this for? Always good to see guitar restorations going on!

Thanks so much!

I found this: http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item/299194802/Tremolo_System_Arm_Whammy_Bar_with_Spring_Nut_for_TL_SP_LG_Electric_Guitar.html

I'm waiting for it to arrive, will post an update. NO idea if it'll work, but seems close enough and at R100 it's definitely worth the chance!
