Greco repair

Post by Skipper » August 5th, 2017, 4:13 pm

Hi, guys, I'm new to the forum. I have a '67 Greco 921 that's missing the tremelo arm and spring. Any idea where I might find these parts? I keep an eye on ebay, but no luck
This is a pic of a similar guitar:

Isn't that a Bigsby tremolo? I'd start with them

Thanks for the information, Alan. I've sent email to Bigsby to see if they can supply the parts.

You might have a hard time finding just the arm. But if you can find a compatible model then I'd just buy that and then try to scrap the parts you need.

You might also want to consider replacing the whole bridge, though on a vintage guitar it might be a sentimentally tragic thing to do.
