Dunno if this is in the right place or not as I am relatively new to site, but I'm having a couple of minor problems...
I recently bought a mim fender strat, with a vintage style trem system. The bar is abit wobbly which is annoying, but the main problem is that I can't screw it all the way in. It just goes down further and further until it hits the tone knobs and gets stuck. I bought it second hand so I wonder if it's a replacement bar that is actually the wrong size?
Anyone have any thoughts as to what the problem might be? thanks
you mean the only problem is that the whammy bar does not screw all the way down?

if that is the case you can:

1. wrap some tape (special thread tape, not what is laying around the house) around the thread.

2. Stick a small end of a toothpick in the hole first while you wind your bar down.

Otherwise, post in the Electric Guitar forum as that is where the 'experts' are.

Ah-ha, thanks will try that. Didn't know if the electric guitar forum was talking about models or something haha. Cheers, will try those techniques
