Just wanted to say Thanks to Sgt. Vimes for the lock nut parts! My Dynasty has been without them since the 90's, it's nice to finally have it closer to complete.  Very Happy

Eventually i'll round off the edges of the one triangle then bead blast and re-paint them. For now a quick coating of black is plenty.


Thanks again!

Anyone still have any of these?

 I'm in need of the full set of three square lock washers, and the three locking bolts. My guitar came with a steel bar replacing the washers and two stripped locking bolts. (Pictured below) -- The bolts don't look stripped cosmetically but if you try and put a hex key inside of them it'll just freely rotate so I had to improvise with a pair of pliers to loosen and tighten them... It's as if somebody tried to force them to tighten/loosen using a standard hex key that's slightly smaller than the metric hex key that should be used...)

I have some left,  but they are not the square type,  they are triangle outer bits for E/A and B/E,  for the D/G strings its a narrow rectangle. 
These are for the Bendmaster FT and Deluxe string locks. 
Its hard to see your pic,  but it doesn't look this type.

My apologies for the horrible picture. :/ Thank you for trying to help Vimes but unfortunately I do have a slightly different lock nut that requires E/A, D/G, and B/E rectangle (maybe even square) washers, I'm short on time right now or I'd get better pictures. Will make sure to post them later on tonight.

Hello Westone owners. I recently acquired a spectrum lx that is missing some of the lock nut parts. I was wondering if anyone here still has any or any leads on where I can find them. I am by no means an expert and I am not sure what each individual little part is called. Hopefully my photo shows things adequately. Any help will be greatly appreciated.Free to good home --LOCK NUT PARTS - Page 2 20151012

Any Chance you have all three washers and/or bolts for the spectrum sx ? I`ve been looking for these on and off for several years, and they are just about the last thing I have left on my SX before its completely restored Smile

Yes mate, I have the clamp plates and bolts (8mm and 12mm)  but I don't have the 1mm shims that the (I think) FT lock requires.
All I ask is for the postage to be covered, the bits are free (beer tokens always accepted, never expected Wink     send me a pm or email and we'll sort you out buddy

The Deluxe requires the 1mm shims, Pete; the FT uses two sets of the plates.

Crustoffer, the slightly longer bolt is for the E/A lock; we've discovered that there are only a few threads holding it all together, which makes it susceptible to stripping so our fix is to put a longer bolt in and drill a small recess in the headstock to allow it to nip up properly!

The other trick with the stringlock is not to overtighten the bloody things - they strip if you look at them hard, eh!!

Fortunatly I usually just finger tighten string locks, probably because my first couple of guitars were dirt cheap ibanez ones with would lose their tuning if tighten to hard tongue

I do have some left, but they are not original parts, the are reproduction parts pressed from something like zinc/pot metal. you may be better off with your stainless versions  though you are welcome to have a set Smile
