A couple of weeks ago I made a thread about looking for a six-screw strat style tremolo... Unfortunately, this thread was made when I didn't have my guitar at hand and the confusing Korean translations suggested by Google made looking up screw spacing a bit difficult, so to amend things, I'm making a new thread to save people getting confused.

To cut a long story short: where can I get a six screw strat style tremolo with a 53mm screw spacing? I'm looking for something I can get in black.

Not sure you'll find 53mm. The common ones are 52.5mm (as near as dammit 53), 54mm and 56.4mm.
www.chguitars.co.uk has them in 52.5mm & 54mm and in black.
Failing that, there are some out there with oval screw holes that might suit. (Wilkinson WV6)

Yeah, I was thinking of something with oval holes but they always seem to be 54mm+ so no good

Yep, sounds like you need the 52.5-mm bridge. Chances are you've just measured it slightly wrong.

Yeah, I was thinking that. Shame I don't have one to compare atm but aren't the 52.5mm bridges actually imperial? My guitar is korean...

No they aren't. The 54-mm ones are based off imperial (2 1/8").

Ah, that's good to hear, it's probably 52.5mm then. Since that's sorted, anyone know of some nice 52.5mm trems that come in black? I was looking at the VSVG before the screw spacing...
