    See title, MIM 50's Classic Strat and I want an arm for the Tremolo. This is a 6 screw bridge, not the 2 screw. So will it take an "import" thread or any USA Fender part? Places to buy hit when I now what I want?

    Thanks

    Neil

    In my experience, good guitar shops tend to have a selection of trem arms in stock and you can try one out with your guitar to make sure it fits. I've always been confused about exactly which arm will fit with which trem.

    It's not the 10-32 threaded American arm. Even the 2-point Classic Player Strats use MIM threaded arms.

    Fits a USA strat arm IME unless they changed it.
