Re: Tut: Removing a Broken Trem Arm w/o Pulling the Trem (pics)
I've broken a few of these bars too, in exactly the same place. Last one I broke was when I got my RG 20th, I tried the bar from my RG750 in it first and it snapped as I was trying to push it in. Crap design, IMO. The fact that it uses bushings too, that's a terrible idea. Feels great when you have new bushings but that feeling doesn't last, they go slack too quickly. On top of that, the bushings are stupidly expensive! I won't be buying bags of those for $24 a pop, I use plumbers tape under the bushings and it's all good.
