JS10th tremolo arm sinking

During a gig last night my whammy bar sank so far down that it was impossible for it to pass over the tone / volume knobs and pickup switch.

How do i fix this ??
Do i need to take off the floyd rose ?

Re: JS10th tremolo arm sinking

1st of all congrats for actually gigging your JS10th, 2ndly you've snapped the arm holder, order a new one from one of the dealers at the top of the page. Max at Cottam guitars in the UK, or if he hasn't got any try Rich at Ibanez Rules
