Ok, then $200 sounds fair..........If you can get him to lower it another $25, it will cover the cost of a new bar (and shipping). The retainer nut comes as part of the bar. The trem has probably been blocked because it has the Lo-TRS II trem. That trem is infamously instable.

FWIW....I paid $150 for the same model (2001)

Or any tremolo that is affordable and that is good enough and will fit in

I believe the OFR trem is a drop in replacement.
