Hi.

I have a Charvel/Jackson, bought in 1989 I think. Think it's a model 3 or 4?
I'm missing a "Sting Lock insert block" on the bridge.

Here is a picture of a charvel/jackson that has the same bridge as I have:

Here is a picture of the bridge:

Also, take a look at the attachment I provided in this thread.


The little part I'm missing is the "String Lock insert block". That square bracket that holds the string in place you know :icon_wink.

I don't know the exact partnumber or name of the bridge. (Could it be Jackson JT-6 Floyd Rose?). It has a "Floyd Rose" label at least.

So, does anyone know where one might be able to get this part? I live in Norway, and over here the guitar shops don't have this part. And believe me, I've looked :thumbsdow

Already tried. That's why I posted here for possible help. Perhaps someone out there has this part lying around. You never know.

It's an old bridge,did you try Jackson itself ?
It's a jackson bridge (licensed floyd rose).
BTW nice blue.

His name is Dave and I have bought many parts from him. He actually machines them himself. I would recommend Dave to anyone.

But whatever, good things come to those who wait, right? I'm finally able to jam my charvel/jacson again.:thumbs:

Hey Mr RSB,
Do you have one of the screws for the lock blocks? My model 2 trem has a stripped out Allen socket on one screw, I just cut a slot in it so I can use a flat screw driver but I'd like to replace it.
Thanks,
Jon

OK dudes, the packages are in the mail- Abra, I pulled the whole saddle off with the lock block, hope it restores your axe. Jon, I put the carcass in a box, on it's way bro!!

Rock on ShredGuitars!!!!!

I love this shit:) Lemmee explain how I came up with this trem, it's been a long long time ago but I purchased an axe for 90 bucks, had a perfect Aerostar bod with the select pups, an ibanez neck from a 520, and this trem with missing parts and broken strings hanging off of it. Probably 10 years ago at least.

Scored an aerostar neck for 30 bucks and sold that axe for 120 bucks (hey, he hit the BIN, it's not my fault), gave the IB neck to another shredder here a few years ago, and this trem has been leaking string lock blocks for 4 years now, one at a time! :)

It's been a win-win for everyone :)
