Heey peeps!

I just broke my Whammy. The screw that holds it is totally fucked nothing less nothing more, just fucked. There's a big black hole where my bar used to be... Conclusion, I very pissed...

But,

Is it fixable!? Or do I need to get a whole new FS? :evil:

Is the bar itself broken, or where it sits in the bridge?

There are many different ways those things can break....kinda have to be more specific.

Superglue your whammy to the broken piece then turn it counter-clockwise to loosen the screw stuck in the bridge. Could work also if you use some epoxy glue or something like that.

I brought it to a guitar repair shop which is in the next town. They are fixing it for me. I came in, the guy asked me what the problem was. So I told him that the whammy was broken. He laughed because he had the same thing a while ago, but he could throw the whole body away! :? I'm getting it back Tuesday I hope...

Thanks for the reply's!

Same thing that happened to my ZR trem on my S470. Except I have a terrible time trying to get it fixed.

Well I normally wouldn't care how long it would take. But I need to some songs coming Friday which means that I can't practice... :?
