I just bought a white Harmony Flying V Copy planning to put Duncans on it. It has the trem bridge but when i bought it there wasnt an arm on it. Im planning on buying one but i don't know what size it requires. I'm pretty sure that it's an import but not sure. if you know tell me. any info u have on this guitar would b helpful also
THANKS

I'm pretty sure they only come in one size.


actualy, they dont. My rg550 has a thicker trem arm than my friends 370, and they are both ibanez, so i cant imagine what differences are for different companies. Also, some are threaded, some are ment to be poped in and are kinda shaped like a cable plug...

i think that its different for an imported guitar than one thats made in the U.S.

to add on it is a threaded hole for it and the bridge is designed like that off a strat. i put a strat trem in it but it doesnt quite fit right

also is it possible to lock the trem so that i stays in tune when i play it?

Take it to a music store and start plugging in tremolo arms till you find one that works.

And it is, but its more setup then anything else. Add more springs to tighten the tremolo, put in a graphite or bone nut, add locking tuners, and it should be pretty good. Still no extreme dive bombing, but much more useable.

If it has a repair center it should sell replacement arms. Just take it in and ask.

Take it to the music shop and ask for a whammy bar or tremolo arm. You'll sound smarter if you say tremolo arm, but they'll know what you want either way. I'm pretty sure they will have one that fits.

so i can lock a strat style bridge? also would a 9volt under the springs make it only push down?

Oh is it a vintage arent those usually fixed? or is it floating?

You wont be able to lock it per say, like you would be able to on a floating tremolo/floyd rose style. What exactly do you want to do with it, im not sure if you want me to tell you how to make it floyd rose like, or like a fixed bridge

Depends if it is a vintage trem or a FR style, on your FR style trems they locking nut will keep it in tune but on a vintage trem you should invest in some locking tuners if you havent already.

Wow, $450 for it? That seems really steep to me. I know it's a vintage guitar... but it's a Harmony. The tuners look generic and there's no telling on the tremolo. I wouldn't give $450 for it haha, sry I didn't mean to break your spirits on this thing

i'm not 100% sure if this is what you mean, but you could stop the tremolo by placing wooden blocks in the trem space cavity.
