FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / Late 70's Strat trem arm size


Memphis, TN

May 31st, 2018 09:47 AM   Edit   Profile  

I have a 1976 Strat that I've had for a while. It has never had the trem arm since I've owned it, but I always assumed a standard 10/32 threaded arm would fit, but that is not the case. I can't seem to find any information about the arm size, and some people act like I am crazy when I say a standard American arm won't fit it. But the standard 10/32 arm is slightly too small in diameter to thread into the trem. A friend's '79 arm work. I am curious if anyone knows what the proper replacement size for late 70's stratocasters is?

Every non-metric Strat trem that I have ever seen, dating back to the 1950s, has a 10-32 threaded trem arm.

Why don't you measure the O.D. of the threads and the number of threads per inch on your friends trem arm?
