    Hi all, I have a contemporary telecaster with a system one schaller tremolo on it with a broken tremolo arm.. It doesn't have the original tremolo arm as the one in it is a screw in trem. The bushing the trem arm screws into snapped just below the collar.. It was a screw in bushing... Will any schaller trem arm and bushing fit it or what options would I have? Thanks in advance!

    Here's a pic of the broken sleeve. The broken part looks silver from getting it off the trem arm with pliers.. It wrung off where the thread got larger.... The sleeve that's snapped screwed inside the bushing and the trem arm screwed into the sleeve.. Was looking at schaller trem arms and bushing, any ideas if it will replace this ok?

    The Schaller Floyd arm and mech can be retrofitted reasonably easily.
