    I have a USA made Peavey Predator Strat copy from the 90s that has a 4 hole Strat type tremolo that fits (I think) standard 6 hole Strat tremolos too.

    I have had two techs check out the guitar and say it is properly wired for grounding, but that the tremolo is not conducting properly making the guitar buzz from lack of proper grounding. What do I need to do to fix the grounding? replace the whole tremolo, the block, some other alternative?
