Re: HELP: RG8527VV tremelo arm installation
" . . . when the gorilla slams it in the hole . . ." I think is how Rich put inserting the trem arm for the first time.
Every time I change bushings I have this problem, it can really be tight but as stated, it will get easier and eventually, TOO easy.
Don't worry about damage, as long as you're careful and apply even pressure you won't do anything 'bad' to it.
But again, as stated above, while it's this tight you'll want to apply some pressure to the bridge while you pull it out. I have seen and heard of people pulling the bridge off of it's posts while trying to get a tight arm out of the slot.
