Hi, I was just messing around with my whammy bar...before, it was pretty loose, then it became really tight, now it won't even screw back in...I think something is stripped, either the bar itself or the hole...any suggestions of how to get it back in? Or do I need a new bar/its unfixable? I can post pics if needed

Get a plumber's tape, the one that looks like a white latex and tape it securely around the bar's thread. Screw it back in, it should be tighter than before, and also another tip, do not screw in the bar too far deep inside, or force it to make it hang. Most vintage style bars are meant to dangle so you dont want to force it too deep, as it will wear out the threads inside.

you should be able to see what is stripped especially if its the bar itself
