My new JEM 7VSBL!

Woo Hoo!
Just picked up my (first of many) Jem!
I wanted the White but was able to work a deal for the Sparkle Blue.
I can't explain how much I love it!!!

But I've got a problem...
There are (2) plastic rings on the wammy bar.
I can insert the bar upto the first ring only???
This leaves too much play in the bar before the trem is effected.

Am I doing something wrong, or is that just the way it is?

Thanks.
~Chris

Yeah, Rich is right of course. When I got my new 7VWH I at first couldn't get it in ( was being gentle ). Don't treat her like a virgin! Now my bar is all loose and sloppy and needs new bushings lol. Please don't read into my comments.

They probably just come tight out of the factory so that if they loosen up a bit (which they're prone to do) it won't matter as much, for a while.
