    trem arm removal

    hi all, just picked up a Cutlass SSS from Guitar Center, which may turn out to be a mistake -- it arrived with dead strings, a horrible setup, and nothing in the case but the guitar & a silica pack -- plus some free scratches and dings.

    new strings, minor setup tweaks, clean & polish everything and I'm in love. this is the best s-style I've ever touched. maybe the best neck.

    two things: how do I get the trem arm off? I don't really plan to use it -- have a strat with a floating trem if I need that sound but much prefer the response of a decked trem, and if I'm not going to use it, it's in the way.

    also I have a buzz in the neck and n+m positions, clean as a whistle otherwise. any thoughts?

    nice to meet you! seems like everybody has more than one! uh-oh.

    Congrats on the new Cutlass! The trem arm will just pull straight out. And yes, it probably is not your last Music Man...

    Was that a "new" guitar? If so, I would request GC to replace it if the dings/scratches bother you. You could also ask them to provide the case candy that was supposed to be included.

    As far as the trem arm, jones4tone answered, it snaps in/out.

    As far as the buzz, contact EBMM customer service, they are the best!!!
