    'Noon,

    I have a Maestro VMB short vibrola-equipped Epiphone Olympic. The clamp that holds the arm to the vibrato is missing and also appears impossible to come by. Has any sourced and alternate part that might work (i.e. pedal steel linkage, etc.)?

    All,
    JA

    Crazyparts.de make that style of arm but I don't know if they would do the hinge. Might be worth dropping them an email though.

    A metal shop might be able to fabricate the hinge reasonably cheaply.

    Just wondering if you found a solution...I have a similar situation with a 64' Wilshire. Seems like the arms are relatively easy to find, but not the clamp!
