Diameter of Wilkinson VSV tremolo bar

Hi all,

does anybody have a guitar equipped with a Wilkinson Vintage-type VSV tremolo? If yes, I need to know the bar's diameter with a precision of .1mm, preferrably taken with a caliper gauge.

Background of my question: I need a 5mm push-in replacement bar for a 1990 Ibanez HQ tremolo (possibly manufactured by Gotoh) but the standard Wilkinson is 5.5mm and thus too wide. I am considering the Wilkinson VSV bar instead, but I need its exact dimensions.
