Need Help Identifying This Part
 
So I was getting ready to put my 1570 in it's case and noticed when I pulled out my trem arm (edge-zero), this little plastic part (washer?) came out with the bar. I am wondering what it does and if it is needed? I have not used my trem since it fell out as a precaution. Anyone have any ideas?

The white pieces on this:

They are there to give the bar a snug fit. An old trick is to take those off, apply nail polish (clear is a good choice), then put the washers back on. This will expand them slightly and the arm will have less (hopefully no) play.

Yours doesn't look white, but I would think it's the same purpose. They are usually quite hard to get off, they don't just fall off. :)

Thanks for the quick reply, it is appreciated. Mine just popped right out last time I took my trem arm off. I'm assuming the little extra play in the arm won't damage the trem if I use it without the washer?

No, I don't think you will ruin anything by using it without the washer. It will only, as you say, have some extra play. :)

Does it look like the bushing in this pic? Edge Zero bridge?

Yeah I think that might be it Cosmo. Ironically enough, my guitar is getting a setup right now but when I get it back I will see if it fits in there. I'm assuming it serves the same general purpose as stated above?
