I'm looking for a whammy bar for my guitar, I saw this online, would it work with my guitar? Also what's the difference that and this? Is the only difference the bottom part and the bar is exactly the same? Thanks.

Does your guitar have a floyd rose? The one in the link has a fixed bridge. Anyway if you have a floyd rose I'd go for a complete bar and the bit the bar goes into, not sure what you call it but it'll be a better fit and it'll feel a lot tighter too. On both my floyd rose's there's a small allen key screw you get to from below that holds the the whole thing on i'e' the tube part with the threads for the bar. I've bought replacement bars before but getting a really good fit is tricky.


Ps this is pressuming you are serious otherwise forget everything I just said

No. You can't put a whammy bar on a guitar with a stoptail bridge. You'd need a Floyd Rose tremolo system on your guitar already.

Well, it should have come with a bar... if it doesn't have one you can get a replacement pretty easily.

Yeah I don't know what happened to it. Will the one in the first link work with it?

Seriously bud, get the whole thing and bolt it in, far better fit. I took the one from my genuine floyd rose and put it in my jackson sl3, it's so much better. The bush part the arm goes into varies a fair bit so if you can then get it too.

the one youre looking at wont work because the Hellraiser has a screw-in type whammy bar. That bar looks like its made for an ibanez system. I think the second one might work.
