    I think there's 2 different sizes for the metric arms. Check Guitarfetish for metric arms. The trem units they sell for Squier guitars have standard 10-32 arms, so look in the trem parts section.

    Which model is it ? Standard ? Other ?

    On mine - which is originally a 2005 Std - I replaced the tremolo block and arm by a laminated-machined steel one, but I think I have the die-cast original block and arm somewhere.

    I think it is a standard Metric M5 thread, but I'll try to check...

    Thanks for the replies. I went to Home Depot and got some 10-32 and M6 bolts. I screwed the M6 into the trem threads, no need for 10-32's. I found out that way. M6 it is.

    Sorry, left handed joke by a righty who grew up in a lefty household.
    My mother used to claim to "unstir" the soup.
