another rg 550 question (parts)

I just auctioned myself a 1987 RG550 (7368696132). I read here for a while now that they are supposed to be nice.... lets see. It is supposed to be made in Japan and there are 3 things which need some attention.

Trem arm is missing. I don't know what trem is on there at all. Whats on it? and where can i get a trem arm?

1 Finetuner screw is wrong.( I know, but i am anal about my guitars)

and last but not least... the little bar Ibanez puts behind the nut.. whatever that thing is called is missing.

Anyone knows where i can get those pieces.

Thanks alot.

alternatively, you should be able to find those things on the 'bay without breaking a sweat.

thanks

couple things... first i don't know what trem is on there so its kinda hard to look for the arm because i don't know what to look for. Same goes for the bar thingy, of which i don't even know the name

Thanks

if it's an actual rg550, then it'll have either an edge or edge lo-pro bridge. both use the same trem arm - the one with the two white bushings.

the bar that goes across the strings behind the nut is called a string retainer.
