Blue locktite is NOT glue. It just makes the threads a little stickier.


So, does the locktite need to be renewed whenever you have loosened the screw? As I f.e. constantly remove that arm after plaing, this wouldn't be a very permanent solution then?

Reece, it sounds to me like you need to put your attitude away. I am a certified luthier and I've been one for over 28 years. I make a living at it. You, on the other hand are a wanna be. Most intelligent people seek the opinion of a qualified person to help them with their guitar issues. I get paid for my help. If I'm kind enough to offer help here, you should be glad to take it. If your trem arm screw keeps loosening, put a drop of BLUE locktite on it, and run the screw in to where it needs to be, let it set overnight to be sure it's set up, and check it in the morning. The screw will not loosen until you loosen it. The stuff is NOT super glue, so no worry. There, that's my pro advice for you. Give it a try and you'll see that if you do what I told you to do, you will be greatful. Go find the other post where I'm helping the guy get rust off his parts... He's been thankful. Rolling Eyes


hey bud, thanks for signing up and dropping some insight and knowledge. i'd just realize that this is a public forum, and sometimes folks might ask you to back your play since anybody can say pretty much anything and claim they're an expert. i wouldn't take most of what's been said so far personally. . . paul coulda' used some more tact, but he's just looking out for reece.
