rg570 trem bar - how hard to find/cost?

I'm looking at bidding on a rg570 on eBay but it doesn't include the trem bar. How hard are these to find, where can I get one and at what cost?

Thanks in advance!

I usually get them from Guitar Center. Really cheap there.

Anyone else find the new ones super difficult to insert and remove? Bought one for the 540s and it is extremely tight fitting! Tempted to try sanding down the little ferrules a bit.

I have a new one that's the same way.... I haven't done anything about it. Let me know if you have any success.

They've got me by a penny, can't beat a good deal.

New bars are always hard to put in. Within a month you'll be crying it won't stay in place anymore. It's just the way life is.

No more loose bars, or have they forced increases again?

Apples to apples, GC's aren't loose, they include the extra bush, those are $20. I bet I have cheaper shipping options though.

Loose bars come out of broken down kits where somebody just buys the trem itself and doesn't want or need the rest.

Fair enough, but all the OP needs is a loose bar. It's out of a brand new kit and has brand new bushings on it........ That's always good enough for me.

Re: rg570 trem bar - how hard to find/cost?

I'm always amused when on eBay there's bars titled "SUPER RARE IBANEZ EDGE OFR PRO LO PRO ORIGINAL ARM BAR"

And they're $50.

I actually just broke my fifth bar the other day.

I've never broken a bar in 25 years of playing. How do you break a bar?
