Here's a source for replacement nylon trem bushings on Reverb. I've purchased a few from him and they work perfect.

Hi,

The Vibrato Arm Bushing for my Supreme broke. I ordered a replacement from https://www.shapeways.com/product/HLJHG ... =161349588. The Vibrato Arm does not fit. It is too loose. I haven't found any other resource on the net where I could order a replacement(Some sites on ebay but they don't deliver outside the USA). Is there any possibility to get the file for the 3D printer so that I could get it printed from a friend of mine ?

Hi @DT,

Sorry to hear that the Shapeways item did not work for you. Please message me offline if you’d like to discuss that particular situation further. We are still working through refining the model.

I’d recommend reaching out to Mike Gallenberger at Gman.music on Reverb or wiguitar on eBay to see if the part you need is available in his stock. I believe he does have several of those parts available.

What's the OD of the refined vibrato arm? I have one coming and I'd like to machine a bushing for it before it arrives

Thank you!

It’s 3/16” round bar, @vertigocycles

Just bought a 1997 Fly Deluxe. The trem arm is extremely loose but I can’t find a wrench to fit it. Any advice?

Hi @Jayrod99; yes, the set screw in the back of the bridge is likely loose, so you will want to use a 3/32” hex tool to tighten it. There’s a link on the parts list page. Good luck, and welcome!!
