    Question Tremolo bar won't stay in place!!!

    Hopefully someone can help me here.

    The tremolo bar on my Jason Richardson cutlass won't stay in play for crap. I tried tightening the little screw on the underside of the bridge right under the whammy bar to see if that would help and it only slightly did but it still just flops around. Anyone know a fix for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    The bar tension is adjusted by a screw on the back side of the brass trem block, visible below the intonation screw for the high E when dive bombing the trem.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    The screw on the bottom of the block controls how far the trem arm can go in. Ideally you want it to fully seat, but not have enough room to go further.

    The tension, as Pete said before, is adjusted by the grub screw on the back of the block.

    Thanks for the info, that got it working properly. Had to back it off all the way then screw it back in to make good contact but now it stays like it should.
