    I just can't figure out how to remove the tremolo bar on this bridge. It's got a small philips screw in the sustain block right underneath the trem, as well as as small allen screw in the side of the sustain block. The allen screw helps tighten the trem bar, but does not allow me to remove it. The philips screw seemingly does nothing when removed.

    In the product description, they say the bar is a screw in, but nothing happens when I try to turn it.
    Anyone got experience with this bridge and can help me out?

    Internal threads? Did you loosen the grub screw all the way?

    5.5mm trem arm with metal tip. Thread is on inside of trem arm and will fit Gotoh 510T and 510TS units as well as the VS-100N and VG-300 Gotoh/Wilkinson units. Gotoh 510 models are generally fitted to a lot of the Suhr instruments and so this is the arm to order if you need a new arm for your Suhr Classic or similar.

    Will fit the following Gotoh tremolo models:

    • EV510T
    • NS510T
    • 510T
    • VS100N
    • VG300
    • VS401

    Thanks! I had removed both screws, but i turned out it still required some force to yank out.
