Fine Tuning Screws for Bendmaster Deluxe tremolo? Empty Fine Tuning Screws for Bendmaster Deluxe tremolo?

Post by musicdan32 on Fri Dec 05, 2008 2:42 pm

Does anyone know where I can purchase the fine tuning screws for a bendmaster deluxe tremolo? I looked at the westone.info/parts, but he does not have them. Also, does anyone know if the screws used in most Floyd Rose tremolos are the same size/ swappable with the bendmaster deluxe?
Thanks

heya bro - no, FR screws are a poor fit but Spares may make you some if you contact him and plead your case! I was lucky enough to pick up a complete Deluxe bridge privately nd I would suggest you keep an eye on eBay as well; there's an FT bridge onthere at the minute and the fine tuner screws will fit the Deluxe, and because they're a bit longer, give you a little more leeway in adjustment.

Well, gang have a wee look at these; i asked a friend of mine who is a very talented model maker to have a look at the FT screws and to see if he could come up with, and he came through with these...

,,,which are little caps for a standard 4mm hex machine screw in this case cast in pewter. He expalined to me exactly how it was done but as I'm only a guitar player, most of it went right over my head!! Laughing He had to cast just the heads because I wanted the steel thread of the screw retained; pewter is way too soft. Elegant solution, no?!
But wait, there's more; these arrived on my birthday and included were these...

Yay for personalized stuff! As a bassist I have no idea what I'm looking at, but it's neat to have your initials built in to your guitar, eh?
