    Replacing Modern Trem and/or arm for Cutlass RS with another original?

    Hi all.
    New and proud owner of a EBMM Cutlass RS HSS in Charcoal Frost.
    I'm looking for advice on sourcing a new trem arm for the Modern trem - which i LOVE as a trem!

    This is purely an aesthetics/preference thing as I've already swapped out the pickguard.

    Looking for a new arm with a black tip OR maybe even picking up an entire black trem like on the Stealth model.

    Where does one find these parts?

    Also, is there another brand/size arm that works in this trem?

    Many thanks!

    A standard black fender tip will fit. Can’t answer the rest of your questions I’m afraid
    Hopefully someone will chime in.
    I will say that I don’t think you can buy replacement trems in different colours.
    You could though get yours powder-coated

    Thanks! I'm a moron. Didn't even think to check if the arm tip was removable! It certainly is and I've purchased a black tip to replace as well as black vol/tone knobs.

    You can buy replacement parts through Music Man sales. I'd call them up and see if they have what your wanting in stock.

    Yes, this is Chandler. I just had three made for an older Axis and they indeed fit perfectly. They can be a bit cranky at times and I have had both positive and not so positive interactions and results over the years but my most recent two were A-OK. Expect a 3 week lead time.
