Hi Rushman and welcome.
Sorry, as an anti-spam measure, new members are restricted from posting hyperlinks for 7 days.

I don't have any first hand experience with this model but if I understand your problem correctly, it has a Bendmaster tremolo and you can fix it by following this repair post on our website from Forum member Westbone.:

The chances of finding an original part are about as slim as finding rocking horse poo.
Good luck with your resto!

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the reply - since it sounds like my chances of finding an original locking nut for the Bendmaster Deluxe on my x275 is about as high as seeing Bigfoot in my guitar room, do you have any suggestions for possible substitutes?

My apologies, I seem to have forgotten to add the link I referenced in my original reply to you!
(It was late, I was half asleep!) tongue

I've added it now and you can follow the fix there.

I doubt if there's anything off the shelf that will do but if you're a little bit handy you can fashion your own replacement.
