A bar you buy off the internet, or if you go to a store they may have a slip in bar for a Fender Vintage trem that would work decently, (if it fits.)

Nothing will work correctly. Just spend the 10 bucks.

You could try a really big allan key welded into there. That'd work for sure.

i like that idea, i tried a screwdriver and it worked apart from the not being angled

I can vouch for the spoon whammy notion! haha. It took a bit of ingenuity and a few well placed strikes with a hammer along with a die set. It worked... for about a week. Perhaps long enough to hold you off?

well i like to see that i'm not alone in my thinking that going ghetto is ok. so i took the whammy bar off my rockband guitar and now i'm using it.

if you go on ebay you can get a complete floyd set that comes with practically all the hardware on the guitar exept the tuners... 30$ beat that. if youre not looking for a change that big then i agree that a spoon would be pretty cool, youll have to bend it and temper/ quench it though, mos of my spoons ar pretty crappy and bend alot when im trying to get ice cream...

what would be the point of putting a floyd rose on a $30 guitar? haha I'd rather put that on my esp but i like to keep that one in tune so string-thru over TOM it stays
