Hey, I got my bar tightened all the way, but when you slightly shake it, you can hear the end of the bar inside hitting the sides of the socket. I just wanted to know if that's how it is supposed to be, because I just noticed this now while doing some Vibrato with the bar.
Try putting a small bit of tape on the end of the bar that you insert. Just wrap a small piece around.

Don't acknowledge right, just dwell on...


This spot in Hell...

...Is where I belong
This happened to my S470's ZR trem, and it totally ****s up the socket if you ignore it.

I'm guessing there's a similar approach to ur trem, but u have to get the the back of (may involve taking the trem out of the guitar) and tighten up the arm socket.

Pretty easy fix, take it out, tighten the nut, put it back in. Some people like putting some kind of extra nut re-enforcment.

^ I just did that and it still shakes around.

EDIT: Nevermind, I cut a few gauze pads and put tiny balls of it in, and it is pretty good now.
