Silver Star Tremelo Arm replacement

Post by scunny » Tue Aug 20, 2019 12:49 pm

Hello all

Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement trem arm that will fit a Silver Star, please?

I guess my model is from around 1980-82, not sure of the exact date as a previous owner scratched off the logo and serial.

Thanks for any help.

Hi scunny,

any Japanese 5mm tremelo arm should fit, but as for brand I would use Gotoh. They made the original bridges for Tokai so they would be your best bet.

I do have an old SilverStar arm with black tip but if you're not in Australia, the freight overseas will outweigh the value of the arm.

regards
