    Broke the tremolo bar...

    off inside the the bridge and I canīt get it out

    Took the bridge out and no luck either. There is a small screw at the bottom of the bridge, does it feed into the hole where the trem bar goesŋŋ

    I was not able to get it out either, ahhhh

    Ya haha. Imagine if it was live, one hand you'd have your neck, the other the bar and a look on your face. Kodak moment if on camera.

    Itīs an ASS

    It was live I just kinda threw it on the ground.

    I bought the axe used, though the previous owner said he was a jazz player.

    The bar may have been from another guitar or something because it looks different than the ones I see on other guitars.

    I just hope I dont have to buy another bridge

    I NEVER heard of anything like this Are you the HULK?

    CS will straighten that out....if you carefully untighten the tiny screw in the whammy and turn the ASS around, the broken piece might fall out....unless it's really not the original hardware, then you might have a problem

    No dude! as he said, it was not a stock part, so therefore it was probably inferior and not meant to be in this guitar to begin with.
    But great advice to give Ernie Ball customer Service a call.

    Well for anyone familiar with Strats this happens every so often. You can try using the smallest drill bit,no in fact skip that and just bring it to a good tech. I dont know since it is not stock if customer care can do anything as the warranty would be voided but then I cant say for sure as EBMM and Peavey are both at the top of the list in customer care where Fender ranks at the bottom in that department.
